About Guatemalan Artists - Mariano Rodriguez Mendoza & Chavajay Mendoza

Mariano Rodriguez Mendoza was born in 1971. He lives with his wife, Concepcion, and their and 3 young children in a very small Mayan village called "Aldea Chacaya" near Santiago Atitlan, on the shore of Lake Atitlan in the Guatemalan highlands. Mariano has been painting since 1993, he is self-taught and his ideas come from years of working as a laborer on plantations which produced crops such as; coffee, cotton, sugar cane, corn and flowers. Mariano's style is unique among the many Mayan artists. He calls his work "vista del pajaro" or "bird's (eye) view". The photograph to the right is of Mariano & Concepcion.

Chavajay Mendoza, Mariano's brother, lives in the same village. Not suprisingly, artistic ablility runs in the family, as is clearly evident in his paintings.

Please realize that your purchase of one of the paintings directly supports the Mendoza family.
