Carlos Goico - Buho de Noche (Night Owl)
Carlos Goico, the infamous counter-culture Dominican artist who died in 2009, is just now being discovered by the artistic elite of the Dominican and Caribbean art world. After being disparaged both personally and artistically his whole life for living and painting on the streets of the Colonial Zone in Santo Domingo, Goico is finally being recognized as one of the finest artists of his time.
