â€śGuayasamĂn is one of the last crusaders of imaginismo. He is a creator of humanity in its broadest sense, of the living and historical imagination. His universe is sustaining although it threatens us like a cosmic disaster. Think before approaching his painting because it will not be easy to withdraw.â€ťâ€”Pablo Nerudaâ€śTo paint is to pray. To paint is to scream.â€ťâ€”Oswaldo GuayasamĂnTwo great masters combine to make an impassioned plea for the dignity and sovereignty of Latin America. Here Pablo Nerudaâ€™s incisive political words accompany the transcendent art of indigenous Ecuadorian painter Oswaldo GuayasamĂn. As firm friends and huge admirers of each otherâ€™s work, these two brilliant Latin American artists create a compelling portrait of a continent.
