About the artists
Elmar Rojas was born in Central Guatemala in 1938. He graduated as a teacher of primary education from the Escuela Normal Pedro Molina de Alameda. In 1957, Rojas began studies at the National School of Plastic Arts. There, he studied with Rodolfo Abularach (1933) and Oswaldo Toledo, who took him outside to paint nature, landscapes, and animals.
