Oswaldo Guayasamín
Birth: Jul. 6, 1919
Death: Mar. 10, 1999

Painter. He was born in Quito, Ecuador. In 1942, he made his first exhibition in his hometown. He is best remembered for his murals in cities such as Quito, Madrid, Paris and Sao Paulo, influenced by the painters Orozco and Picasso. His paintings were exhibited all around the world. Among others "La Época de la Cólera," "Huacayñán," "Las Manos de la Ira," "La Ternura" and "La Capilla del Hombre." He was cremated and his ashes, within an urn, were located under a pine (named el Árbol de la Vida, the Life's Tree) in the garden of the Capilla del Hombre, his last project in Quito. (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
