Possibly one of the best art exhibitions that I've seen in recent months is presently on view at the Oxenberg Fine Art gallery in Wynwood... for a few more weeks only. Artist Cesar Santos has achieved a coup with his amazing artistic palette, masterful brush strokes, whimsical winks at the viewers and a blissful acknowledgement towards dozens of old masters.
