Max Leiva, 1966 | Abstract Figurative sculptor


The Guatemalan artist graduate of the country’s National School of Fine Arts, spends his working time between his home country and Mexico. The globe-trotting artist, who spent time at the University of Silpakorn in Thailand under a UNESCO scholarship, states that Guatemala lacks sufficient foundry facilities required to undertake his work.
After preliminary sketching sessions on paper, small studies of his works are constructed using Plasticine, ceramic clay or gypsum whilst metal frames are used to facilitate the silicone mould-making process. Patination and finishing are then completed in Leiva’s Guatemalan workshop.

Erwin Guillermo, 1951 | Expressionist painter


Guillermo was born in Guatemala City in 1951. He is actually one of the best representatives of Guatemalan Art. His style: expressionist, figurative, and symbolic glows in themes such as, traditions, politics, festivities, popular icons, social contradictions; like anguish, despair, and love. Colorful works where fruits, animals, the exuberance of the Guatemalan Tropics, and a particularly stylized sensuality of the human figure, mesh to transmit emotions and establish a dialogue between spectator and the artist. He lives and works in Guatemala City and studied art at The National School of Arts. He has shown internationally in places such as Germany, London, Taiwan, New York, San Antonio; Texas, Mexico, and Central America. He has also received numerous prizes, awards and distinctions for his work.
