Oswaldo Guayasamín

Pain and hope

This exhibition is an example of the pictorial production of the Ecuadorian master Oswaldo Guayasamín, who is not only the most visible artist of that country during the 20th century, but also one of the most outstanding Latin American artists. His abundant work materialized through multiple media including not only painting but also murals, sculpture, drawing, graphics, jewelry and architectural conceptions. The artist was able to develop and project his work throughout six decades in different continents, attracting attention with his particular figurative expressionism and his evident social conscience.
