Historical Context:
Oscar Peren 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.
