The Art Asylum

Each of Earl Darius Etienne’s works is influenced by his environment and strives to transcend the conventional in various ways – for example, by creating illusions of motion in visibly static paintings. He is undoubtedly one of the most established Dominican artists. Stop by the Art Asylum to view and purchase some unique pieces that reflect the soul of the leading figure on Dominica’s contemporary art scene.
