One of Ecuador’s most well-known painters, Oswaldo Guayasamin, has his own very unique style, telling his stories through paintings of people with extremely detailed facial expressions and hands. Most of his paintings either depict very scared or tired looking people. The way he paints these people’s hands in relation to that of their faces captures thevery image conveyed by Guayasamin in his artwork. Not forgetting to include aspects of his patriotism in his paintings,Guayasamin’s style is very story-telling and thorough; the perfect mix between culture and individual emotion. In a city like ours, Guayasamin’s art would really speak to the ever changing and diverse artistic youth. Although you may not have heard his name here, he is considered one of the best painters in South America.
