Riviera Art Gallery: Indulge Your Imagination

June 05, 2017

In addition to pristine beaches, majestic coral reefs, and world-class water sports, Play del Carmen is also an oasis for art lovers. If you’re in the mood to purchase that perfect piece for your home, check out Riviera Art Gallery, which features original paintings, lithographs, and photography by established and up-and-coming artists from across Mexico and the world. You’ll find works by Mexico City native Ricardo Campero, whose style blends architectural design and precision with bold use of color and texture that has earned him comparisons to Alfaro Psiqueiros and Rufino Tamayo. Marvel at the large-scale oil and enamel creations of Gloria Riojas, whose work exudes dynamic movement in its angular layerings of form. Experience the haunting beauty of the paradoxically nightmarish and alluring clowns of Cuban artist Yasiel Elizagaray, or the delicate surrealist transformations in the images wrought by English painter Daniel Lewis. If you’re lucky, the artists may even be in house to chat about the fascinating process that goes into the making of each stunning work of art.

Address: 20 Avenida Norte, Col. Gonzalo Guerrero, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico
