Mongolian Artwork on London Road

Is it an art gallery or is it a restaurant? Well actually, it’s both. To the average person DaVinci on London Road appears to be your ordinary run-of-the-mill Italian restaurant. Well-known in the London Road area for providing good quality authentic Italian food and a fun and friendly atmosphere DaVinci has made a positive name for itself since opening one year ago. However, a hidden gem hides within the restaurant which truly brings the authenticity and originality of DaVinci to a whole new level. Elbegzaya Khaltar has set up her own independent art workshop and exhibition at the back of DaVinci displaying some of her most innovative and talented work. Elbegzaya’s artwork combines the traditional aspects of the Mongolian painting style such as bright colours with a contemporary but abstract twist, producing something inspiringly beautiful.

As an accomplished artist, Elbegzaya has had a lot of her artwork published, including exhibitions displayed in Arundel, Brighton, London, Oxford and many more places. Before moving to Brighton eight years ago, Elbegzaya worked as an art teacher in Mongolia, teaching art to her many students including orphans whom she would help financially by selling her art, in turn growing to represent a motherly figure in their lives.

Elbegzaya’s paintings are for sale, selling typically between £500-£3000. Having painted for over forty years, painting and art are one of Elbegzaya’s biggest passions in life. Through her artwork she can express her most inner emotions converting them in to something distinctively enchanting in the process, making her exhibition truly something not to be missed.

    Loved our visit here this morning and feel I have left behind a new friend. She is an incredibly talented artist and a lovely warm person. Not sure if this is posting so I have done it twice. Will definitely revisit her before we leave Brighton
