ART Collective Exposition

The very talented Guatemalan watercolorist, Josué Hernández delights the observer with the use of strong yellow, blue and red tones, nuances and intensities, and incorporates figures of birds, churches and houses that are part of his poetic compositions.

Through varied mediums renowned artist Daniel Espinoza conveys the everyday life of individuals.

With time, colors, textures and shapes ingrained in his work, he has created an artistic language that is endless in its imaginative possibilities.

The extraordinary Chilean artist Virginia Tagle’s landscapes, unlike traditional styles that do not provide details, instead revives the land as an inspirational element.

All of them at La Antigua Galería de Arte, 5a av. norte #29, La Antigua.
