San Juan Comalapa is a small town in the province of Chimaltenango, not more than hour and a half drive from Guatemala City. This town was hard-hit by the civil war that engulfed the country for 36 years. The military outpost on the outskirts of the town was responsible for hundreds or even thousands of crimes committed against the local indigenous people. The people endured this hardship and they express their memories and suffering on a series of murals on the access road to the town.

By the way: this town is full or Primitivism Artists. Home to the famous Andres Curruchich (e).

The USAC -only public university in Guatemala- has a long history of supporting the commoners causes and was the only institution that openly dared opposed government repression and state sponsored crimes. And due to that, it was a victim of state atrocities against its students and teaching staff. We see that spirit in its Graffiti.

If I’m not wrong, this graffiti depicts two Zapatistas. What is a Zapatista? Well, I rather have this song explain it to you: Zapata’s Blood.

I found this graffiti at USAC, which is the oldest University of Guatemala, and the only public one too.

Meet them Brave young Men and Women who dare give some color, character and life to these otherwise plain, insipid soulless walls of this City of ours. Their Art called my attention since I moved back to Guatemala City. I got to love their styles, their themes, colors, Their Message. I was glad to have stumble upon them today. I got so excited when I saw them Painting, we hit the brakes and reversed to get a glance of them at work.
