Artist Biography:
Oscar Peren (b.1950) lives and works in the Kakchiquel Maya town of San Juan Comalapa, Guatemala, which has a history of Naif-style painters that spans over 60 years. Peren currently works in his family-run gallery in Comalapa, and exhibits widely in his home country. In painting, Peren utilizes two distinctly different styles: one being his depictions of Guatemalan village life, the other being of a more contemporary, western style of mostly southern Guatemalan landscapes.
