Art Gallery in La Quinta Avenida, Playa del Carmen for over 9 years. Born from the need of giving tourist access to the city’s incredible art and cultural life. Started as Gastón Charó’s studio to then evolve into a place where to expose art and all it’s different ramifications: from sculptures to paintings, photographs, jewellery and much more. Gastón Charó Gallery is the perfect expression of the concept of art being a universal language that goes beyond every country’s borders to unify people in the expression of the self through art. Exposing mainly Gastón Charó’s work which depicts an exotic combination of cubism, surrealism and expressionism. The art gallery also exhibits several national and international local artist offering a wide variety of styles and techniques in order to satisfy every person’s need.
