Born in San Juan Sacatepequez, Guatemala. He has shown locally and internationally in numerous ocasions. Name of this collection: Utopías "The concept taken not in the sense of the impossible or impractical, but the reflexive sense about the world we live in, its inequalities and tribulations. Through our dreams and hopes, we should make progress in our search of an ideal an better society, one that is more just and solidarious, one that makes sense of life and allow us to go in search of happiness. From the beginning my work has been determined by the historical events and the formation process of history the Guatemalan nation. In most of my work I seek to exalt the Maya Women because of her historic relevance, especially in relation to the events of our civil war during which entire communities were pushed into exile. This created a break or change in our cultural identity and the relationship with the land and our links to it. Women who became widows or who lost a marital relationship are the ones that cry or clamor their space, their children, their partners who wait in exile or in a forgotten cemetery waiting to be discovered. They have been the ones in charge of transmitting our cultural identity. Their cooing and judgements passed over to their children, sowing life transmitting hope and maintaining group cohesion, generating and strengthening identity. In my paintings most of the time there is a sort of desolate "landscape". In These landscapes I intend to create mental states: loneliness, sadness, pain. There is a parallelism between the solitude of the land, which runs out of trees (an ecological sense) and the feeling of loneliness in women-both of these being symbols of life-one have lost their partners, there are no children, no land ... their love inconclusive."
