Artist Statement:

 

Guillermo Maldonado

Born in Guatemala City in 1961.

Maldonado studied art at the Guatemalan National School of Fine Arts. Even though he is proficient in different techniques he has chosen wood engraving as his favorite medium of expression. The quality of his engravings is outstanding. Maldonado's work has been centered in customary scenes, in this way he rescues the humbleness of the craft, mixing the artistic with the artisan when summarizing, in a single physical space, his condition of artist and printer. Classic drawing is the base for his contemporary style since it provides his engravings with a very subtle elegance that is characteristic to his work. He has participated in many group and individual shows  and his works can be found in private collections all over the world.
