We bought a painting from him. He said he would ship. He said he would provide tracking. He doesn't take calls or answer emails. $530. $40 in cash. The rest on visa. We have filed a dispute. Should have read the review.

My wife and I bought a painting from Oscar himself at his gallery. We fell in love with his style and use of colors (and him - he is very charming). We took a picture with him and the painting as we always do so we have a memory of the Artist. He convinced us that if we pay cash,... More

They took them off the canvas stretchers for ease of transportation. That was a big mistake with mine. One of the paintings I bought... More

All around Quepos and Manuel Antonio you will find gift and souvenir stores that also sell paintings. There are high end gift shops mostly affiliated with hotels, typical souvenir stores, and open air booths. Most of the work you will see repetitively in many locations right alongside the mugs and keychains. But if you are looking for original ART and... More
