This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Guy Colwell was born on March 28, 1945 in Oakland, California.  He studied for two years at the California College of Arts and Crafts before joining the Mattel company as a toy sculptor in 1966. 

He started work on his first comic book in 1972, creating images of violence, prison and ghetto life, and political repression.  A political activist, he  was imprisoned in 1968 for two years for draft resistance.  Colwell worked on comics with social consciousness throughout the 1970s, doing work for the San Francisco Good Times, among others.  In 1986 he volunteered as a map artist for the Great Peace March, showing the route to each campsite of the March. 

After the GPM, he moved to Auburn, CA to work as a colorist for Rip Off Press (an underground comix publisher) as well as creator of the erotic comic book Doll.

After moving to Berkeley, CA, he dedicated himself to his real calling: painting.  He created a 700-square- foot rainforest wall at the Oakland Zoo, and other murals in the area.  He creates art based upon his personal and political point of view, never shying away from controversial subject matter.  This is evidenced in his painting, Abuse--which deals with the prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib.
