San Juan Comalapa, about an hour north of Antigua in Guatemala's western highlands, is renown as a community of painters. With a total population of about 40,000, there are more than 500 residents who wield a brush, producing their own brand of "naive" art. I had the pleasure of meeting the town's most well-known painter today, Oscar Peren, and the up-and-coming Dilia España, both of Kaqchikel Mayan heritage.
