About the artist:

Jose Colaj
José Colaj was born in Comalapa Chimaltenango, the cradle of naive artists of Guatemala. His work is contemporary, his subject matter the tribulations of the hard working people of Guatemalan highlands and their social struggle. The earth tones, the intense orange and reds emulate the colors the soil in which he was raised and the costumes of his people. Durante his short life as an artist, he had numerous and successful one man shows. Some of the series he produced are entitled "Eternal Vigil", "Re-encounter", "Dreams and Hopes", "Roots", all of them allusives to the experiences lived during the civil war some of the Maya people. His works can be found in private collections in Guatemala and abroad.
