The Artists of San Juan la Laguna are known in Guatemala as some of the finest painters and artists in Central America.
With local art work hanging in the Smithsonian, and galleries around the world the the San Juan Cooperative is proud and privileged to present our artist community as individual groups who work together fusing ancient Mayan arts with modern styles and techniques.
The imagination and creativity of the local artists cradled in the caldera of an ancient volcano exposes their natural expressionism bursting with color and life.
These artists create paints made from ancient Mayan recipes passed down through the ages to create their natural dyes and pigments.
The unique composition for their vibrant colors come from secret ingredients extracted from seeds, flowers, plants, roots, bark and ground jade
The canvasses upon which they paint are hand woven by the women in the town from raw cotton and silk blends grown locally and specifically chosen to create the texture and vitality of the artists imagination.
The town of San Juan la Laguna is located on Lake Atitlan in Guatemala.
