Here’s some more information about the artist:

Carlos Galli, one of the best known and loved eco painters in Costa Rica, resides in Jaco. Painting since the age of four, Galli's talent has been noted since his teenage years; at seventeen he was awarded first place in the "Best Youth Artist" competition, a contest held nationally at the high school level. In 1993, he received an honorable mention in the international contest held by Airbrush Magazine in the United States. That was his first entry. Carlos' work has been recognized by prominent publications such as “La Nacion” and “Costa Rica Today” for both his art work, and his unerring ability to capture the beautiful flora and fauna with his eco-murals.

In 1995, his murals were featured in “Encuentros con el Arte”. This was a mini-documentary shown in theatres throughout the San Jose area.

His paintings can be found in private collections throughout the world, from as far away as Hong Kong to right here in Jaco, and his eco-murals are displayed all over Costa Rica. One look at Carlos’ breathtaking work tells you he is truly a gifted artist when it comes to capturing the beauty of Costa Rica.

Carlos Galli's artwork is available for purchase in Giotto Gallery in Jaco (next to Pachi’s Pan bakery).
