"Personajes en el Muro" upcoming group show in Germany

 541 after the birth of the great master Albrecht Durer in Nuremberg, Germany, ten Latin American artists, mostly Guatemalan come to exhibit their work and continue the legacy of narrative painting at Galerie Arauco in Nuremberg. The title of the exibition is “Personajes en el Muro” (Characters on the Wall). Coming from different backgrounds but sharing the common geography of Central America these artists display their work in different 2-D media and inspired by the universal custom of telling stories. The artists participating are: 

Akbal Rodríguez (Guatemala)

Alexis Rojas (Guatemala)

Arturo Monroy (Guatemala)

Carlos Chávez (Guatemala)

Erick González (Guatemala)

Francisco Auyon (Guatemala)

Guillermo Maldonado (Guatemala)

Juan Francisco Yoc (Guatemala)

Julio Morán (Guatemala)

Ricardo Clement (Mexico)

Patrick McGrath (Puerto Rico)

Like the old Latinamerican and universal customs of telling stories, the show “Personajes en el Muro” represents that intimate language that occurs between the spectator and the work of art, where every character becomes a storyteller.
