Photo of Javier Cárcamo Guatemala

Cárcamo was born in Guatemala City, Guatemala;
on January 25, 1980, in the hearth of a humble family.
At the age of 14 he began studying at the Roberto Cabrera Padilla Plastic Arts School, in the Universidad Popular, where he became interested in contemporary plastic arts.

During his years as a student he experimented with diverse painting and sculpture techniques. His first personal exhibition was \"Stigio \'99\", at the age of 19. Later he exhibited \"The Tunnel of the Massacres\", \"Reliving the Scene of the Crime\", \"After Hours of Thought\" and \"Gods You Are\", a series which presented paintings and engravings created with blood.
In 2001 he joined his teacher, the artist
Jorge Corleto, on a project consisting of a series of murals that illustrate the history of art. These murals can be found on the walls of the Universidad Popular in Guatemala City.

As writer, he made debut in the year 2003, with the publication of his book Words that you would never dedicate (Palabras que Nunca Dedicarías), with a prologue written by the French philologist Géry Faivré de Arcier.

In September, 2008, he presented his second book, What I Wrote While You Were Hiding (Lo que escribí mientras te escondías), a selection of prose written between 2004 and 2007. The prologue was provided bythe Guatemalan writer Gustavo Bracamonte.
