Rojas-Ford Fine Art (Miami) showed work by Elmar Rojas at Pinta Miami 2018.
Rojas was a Guatamalan artist and architect. He also founded his homeland's Ministry of Culture and was that agencies first minister. He died in 2018. The artist was also a master of weaving the two main lineages of Guatemala together in his work. He was a student of not just art but history, literature and culture.
There often seems to be a dark figure even in his most brightly colored work. His work is rightly labelled magical realism, even when the realism takes a secondary role to the magic.
