    This time, Lebajo’s latest art pieces drew inspiration from the flora and fauna, and mystical creatures and realms that dramatize both his artistic career and his normal life on the far side of canvas and paints. As he reinvents his abundant passion for arts, this exhibit represents the fruitful and vibrant five decades of Raul Lebajo’s career in the art of painting.
