About

This mixed media painting by Mendel Samayoa, is part of his “Literary” series based on poetry by Paolo Guinea. Samayoa employs pages of Guinea’s poetry into the canvas of his oil paintings converting the words into images. His brushstrokes bend light into shadows while creating a stage for the canvas to come alive. There is musicality and performance in his work, at times a serene melody and others a darker deeper base. This original work is signed lower left. Painted on linen canvas, size includes foam board frame and is ready to hang. Mendel Samayoa Biography Born in Guatemala, 1964 Education Graduate architect, University of San Carlos de Guatemala Cinematographic studies, Chilean Film Institute History Mendel Samayoa and his family discovered his artistic skills at a very young age. His dad was a cartoonist and although Samayoa was encouraged to pursue his passion, he was required to obtain a formal education in a more practical field. He continued architecture degree for many years while he organized his own artwork exhibits throughout Guatemala. Eventually, he moved to Chile to pursue his artistic career full-time as a filmmaker and visual artist.
