Guy Oliverís moving image work is rooted within a framework of self-portraiture, and explores notions of masculinity, identity, comedy and tragedy, taking a highly personal but irreverent working approach. The work integrates and then dissects areas of popular culture: cinema, sport, politics, popular music, stand-up comedy and art history act as the recurring subject matter. Recent presentations include Jerwood/FVU Awards 2020, London and Art Night.

The artist was in the following exhibition:
The 2021 Film London
Jarman Award Touring Programme
