What: Hot off the heels of a visit to Burning Man, where he performed live painting in the midst of a sandstorm, Carlito Dalceggio has literally taken over the COA Gallery space and has transformed it according to his palette. The result: expansive paintings; totems; sculptures; and olfactive atmospheres. Carlito promises an unbridled atmosphere bursting with colour, and indeed, a unique experience not to be missed!
