Guido Vedovato (30 June 1961 in Vicenza, Italy) Italian naïve painter and sculpture.

Vedovato is one of the best-known Naïve artists. He was born in Vicenza, northern part of Italy. He lives and works in Quinto Vicentino. He graduated as an economist and had no artist scholar background. Yugoslavian Naïve art had a big effect on his works. It made him to start painting at the end of the 1970s. At the beginning it was one of his hobbies however later it became his passion.

He wants to depict short stories in his paintings. We may have a look at the life of the modern villages in the Italian chains of the Alps. Some of his well-known paints depicts animals in the night, but—as he said, he preferred to paint humans.
