Painting Dominican Republic
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Painting

Painting is a way of life in the Dominican Republic. Every house, from the most elegant to the more modest ones, is decorated with brightly coloured paintings. In galleries, but also on the street, very lively and colourful paintings are omnipresent.
