Oswaldo Guayasamin was a Quechua Indian and Ecuadorian master painter and sculptor.
During 1942 and 1943, Guayasamin traveled to the United States and Mexico, where he met Orozco. They traveled together to many of the diverse countries in Latin America. They visited Peru, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay and other countries. Through these travels he observed the indigenous lifestyle and poverty that appeared in his paintings.
The artist's last exhibits were inaugurated by him personally in the Luxembourg Palace in Paris, and in the Palais de Glace in Buenos Aires in 1995. In Quito, Guayasamin built a museum that features his work. Guayasamin's images capture the political oppression, racism, poverty, and class division found in much of South America.
