We bought one painting which is called Mama Africa. The shop is clean and Dr. Bulugu is a very nice guy which takes care about his clients.

The "gallery" is an over-stretch for this tiny shop! There are so many other vendors selling exactly the same (and/or similar) paintings and crafts. Worth looking around and bargaining for a better price elsewhere nearby.

This gallery has some unique pieces of art which you can only find over here. What makes it unique is that Dr. Bulugu has his own style of portraying life in Africa. Not only animals but also some amazing work of people.
