Guild is a graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone College in Dundee. He was an influential teacher and colleague there before setting off for a period living on the Ascension Islands.

Guild's work often takes its inspiration from the history of art, giving it a contemporary twist. This sinister and unsettling painting is in part inspired by the bizarre portraits of the Italian mannerist painter Guiseppe Arcimboldo (1527-1593).
