This post is also available in: SpanishOn Tuesday April 1st there was no better way to start the new month than with Fernando Tamburini and a glass of wine at his art gallery, Arte Tamburini in La Romana. Having just been featured in the most recent issue of Casa de Campo’s exclusive resort and resident magazine, CasaLife, with a magnificent 4 page spread, the Casa de Campo community turned out in force in support of this inspiring Dominican artist. With pieces from his new collection so popular, they were literally flying off the walls and into Casa de Campo villas, the casual gathering was a great success.
About Fernando Tamburini Originally from Barahona a province located in the south-west of Dominican Republic, Tamburini graduated from the Altos de Chavón School Design, before moving to New York and eventually returning to the school, to work as an art teacher and later as the Director of the Altos de Chavón Art Gallery. Tamburini works on his creations from his studio in La Romana and continues to be one of the most popular Dominican artists in the area, if not the country. Loved for his abstract and colorful representations of Dominican culture and lifestyle, Tamburini’s art characteristically features scenes with bright, vivid colours and surreal symbols, such as the house- symbolizing security and femininity, and roses- representing purity and wholesomeness.If you haven’t yet visited Fernando Tamburini’s new art gallery it’s open daily, located at Calle Altagracia #6, La Romana.
