Jorge Mazariegos Jr.
Jorge Mazariegos Jr. was born in San Marcos, Guatemala in 1970 and is a very well known landscape painter. He started his studies in art at the very young age of 9 with his father Jorge Mazariegos Rodriguez and has been following the family tradition. His love affair with dogs started some time ago as he was searching for new visual element, one that represented our rural and urban realities. "No other creature in this planet represents our evolution, our problems and human experiencies as the dog. It reflects our daily lives in Guatemala and it is totally recognizable but is also universal".
