Painting of Antigua's Los Paso Street in Guatemala, "Calle de Los Pasos"$169.99
Victor Mayor paints a scene from Los Pasos Street in Antigua where bougainvillea tumbles over ancient walls and cobblestones glisten with raindrops. The street was originally planned as the setting for the Viacrucis, and the chapels represent the 12 Stations of the Cross.
Titled "Calle de los Pasos" in Spanish.
Upward Climb Expressionist Painting, "Ladder"
A ladder stands tall in a fallow field, reaching toward a glowering sky. Stretching laboriously, one rung at a time, a woman in traditional dress struggles up the ladder to the prize at the top – a single piece of bread. "The bread represents the effort it takes to get food in my country," says artist Bonifacio Maxia Cutzal, who signs his work as "Boni." He depicts the woman with an elongated torso and oversized feet, stylizations peculiar to his artistic identity. The canvas used is especially thick.
Titled "Escalera" in Spanish.
Colorful Oil Painting of a Village Scene in Guatemala, "Weaver"$107.99
Neighbors go about their daily shores in a small Guatemalan village. Carrying a hoe over his shoulder, a man walks homeward past women drawing water from the well and a boy who feeds the chickens and turkey. An older woman kneels beneath a shade tree to weave on a backstrap loom. "This is a scene I saw in my own hometown," says artist Bonifacio Maxia Cutzal, who signs his work as "Boni." "I was on my way home from delivering some paintings when I paused to watch this family at work, and I wanted to share a glimpse of my country."
Titled "Tejedora" in Spanish.
Signed Oil Painting of an Antigua Street and Volcano, "Calle San Francisco II"$119.99
Colonial homes line a cobblestone lane that leads toward a volcano in the distance. "Calle San Francisco is one of my favorite streets in Antigua — its colors and flowers, the beautiful landscape," Bonifacio Maxia Cutzal confides. He works in luminous oils to paint this beautiful and evocative work of art.
Titled "Calle San Francisco II" in Spanish.
