This blog was started by Julia Pimes and Óscar Diaz to compile an extensive database of Contemporary Art coming out of Central America and it's diasporas. We are both artists and committed to studying the region. Julia is Salvadoran and Óscar is Salvadoran as well. You can also request info in spanish info if need be. for diaspora artists they will be tagged diaspora.
