Dear friends of art and music,
I am very happy that we had so many visitors to Alejandro DeCintis new exhibition “Metamorphosis” and want to thank you all for coming!
The exhbition found its introduction with the beautiful concert of the very talented Rasmus Vamos Fecher, who played classical compositions for the guitar. As he often played a lot of south european music, one could hear and feel themselves be drawn into the paintings… A pure pleasure! Keep your eyes and ears open for this young talent!
Later that day, Rafael Ramirez Máro held the introduction speech to the exhibition, together with the artist Alejandro DeCinti. His speech was extremely informative, as it dealt with the reception and tradition of the European art culture on South American countries like Chile, where the artist comes from. It also explained, why the artistical tradition of Realism is still very present in South America. All in all a very interesting and eye opening experience!
Here are some pictures of the opening:

Dear friends of art and music,
now for the 2nd time the unique artist Alejandro DeCinti from Madrid is a guest in my gallery. Last year he already caused a sensation in the local media with his exhibition “The Ship of Fools”. Today he presents himself with the theme “metamorphosis” from the Greek mythology of the poet Ovid. I can promise you that his new paintings will convince you of his mastery anew. For the large and medium-sized exhibits on display in the gallery Decinti uses the old master technique of “chiaroscuro” – developed in the late Renaissance and Baroque. DeCinti bridges the gap from ancient literature to today by mixing this old painting style with elements of the contemporary art and thus creates his own unique style. In addition to this I can also recommend the associated framework program in upcoming months!
Before the opening there is a classical concert in advance (Rasmus Vamos Fecher, guitar)! More information about the concert can be found below.
Following: a tour and discussion with the artist.
Anyone who has not yet found the time to see this impressive realistic paintings of DeCinti, now has the opportunity to look at his works.
