Very good and varied art selection. A charismatic gallery owner with excellent English, someone that will go out of his way for you. And great deals. Too good to be true. Well.....its not true. He is great at convincing the buyer that they don't need...More

This guy has to been put behind bars. Makes his living by stealing from people. We paid him a lot of money and he said he would send us the paintings. Ends up; he will send nothing and just sells it to another person. We...More

The gallery has some good stuff, but the owner is a shady operator with zero credibility. So do not do business with him - if you have to please ensure everything is settled in store before you pay him. Because after you pay him, he...More

We had a very positive experience at Ubago gallery. The owner worked with us to find four pieces that we love, within our budget. We took the paintings home with us, and they were carefully rolled in a protective tube.
