Pop-Up Art Galleries on the Streets Antigua Guatemala

Pop-Up Art Galleries on the Streets  Antigua Guatemala BY RUDY GIRON

Art galleries pop up at any moment on the street of Antigua Guatemala. Costumbrismo paintings (sometimes anglicized as Costumbrism) is the most popular style; which is the literary or pictorial interpretation of local everyday life, mannerisms, and customs, primarily in the Hispanic scene, and particularly in the 19th century. Calle del Arco is where most art galleries pop up in Antigua Guatemala, especially on the weekends when the entire strip becomes pedestrian.

Have you ever bought a painting from these ambulant art vendors?
