Norman Morales (Guatemala, 1979) is a visual artist, cofounder of Colectivo La Torana and Taller Experimental de Gráfica de Guatemala. He studied Architecture at Universidad de San Carlos de Guatemala and Printmaking at Escuela de Pintura, Escultura y Grabado La Esmeralda, México D.F.
This artist is distinguished by his analytical skills, which make rationality and neatness prevail in his works, where “everything is order”. In his work, the artist addresses personal preoccupations and interests, without abandoning his conception of architecture as habitable and transformable space. In his pieces, certain humanistic feature coexists with an increasingly introspective character through which the spectators can access the artist’s personal world.
Morales’s work has been displayed in numerous solo and group exhibitions in private and institutional spaces in Guatemala, Costa Rica, the USA, Peru, Mexico, Honduras, Dominican Republic and Spain, among others, and his works are present in public and private collections in Spain and several countries in South and Central America.
