Alan Benchoam

My name is Alan Benchoam and I am the artist “who paints with doors”. My work is a celebration to the unnoticed, and a tribute to the beauty of the unexpected. I hope to inspire others with my art to look at the world under a different light, so they can find beauty in the ordinary.

As an artist I embrace the concept of reincarnation by giving new life to old doors. I see each door as a unique canvas, a blank state waiting to be transformed in something new and significant. I believe in giving old doors in my collages a new life, allowing them the opportunity to tell a new story or to create a new concept. My art “opens doors” to endless possibilities and new life.

“GUATEMALA, opening the doors to the whole world!
When we create a collage, each door is placed individually in different reliefs… That is why our works are absolutely full of reliefs.”
