From the artist: “In my recent visit to Guatemala, I visited a small community in the city of Retalhuleu, where a large part of the population are families, who get ahead economically with small businesses. Some sell ice, firewood, tortillas, or soft drinks. On this occasion, I took a photograph and turned it into a painting of Olga Perez. Her family makes ends meet thanks to the sale of tortillas.”
