Guirado was living in Sydney Australia in 1966 painting classical portraits and landscapes. Getting frustrated at his limitations one day he lost his temper and threw a bunch of oily rags at the painting he was working on. All of a sudden a new world appeared before his eyes and his signature style of abstract surrealism was born. This was the era of the Beatles and Stones, Psychadellia, experimenting with LSD and a rising interest in metaphysics. Guirado's stylistic style was a testament to the era of opening the third eye to see beyond the realities that restrain us. This ideal continued throughout Guriado's lifetime work causing him to become somewhat of a guru figure amongst those who knew him and to be called Maestro and visionary by his contemporaries and academics.
