Last Thursday 11th of September, the main art gallery at Altos de Chavón featured amazing sculptures and paintings by artists, Luis Muñoz and Aleksander Azdic in their art exhibition called Traces from the Caribbean and Europe.
The impressive artwork produced by Luis Muñoz (from the Dominican Republic) and Aleksander Azdic (from Serbia) was displayed in Altos de Chavón’s main art gallery and it was appreciated by many of the students from the Altos de Chavón school of Design and other Casa de Campo art fanatics.
The pieces range from beautiful and striking paintings with Taino themes (by Luis Muñoz) to intense and deep representation of the senses (by Aleksander Azdic).
