Carlito Dalceggio working in Mexico.

It was like the 60s come alive last winter for Quebec artist Carlito Dalceggio. Driving in a van around Mexico, he picked up hitchhiking artists and dancers, stopped to paint sacred deserts, and participated in peyote ceremonies with native shamans. It was the much traveled Dalceggio’s inaugural journey of his Project ART—Art Road Trip.

Dalceggio brought back with him about 30 large paintings for his upcoming show Splendours of existence II. The new show includes furniture the artist has repainted to show “art is not something that’s distant from everyday life.”

“I wanted to show that art is a free ritual without boundaries or rules. So I went all over Mexico painting deserts, cities, villages, the oceans.” says Dalceggio.
