From a barren, Rocky Hillside to the cultural epicenter that it is today, the ahhh… Ras Natango Gallery and Garden has always had a special, unique atmosphere. In 1988, Ian Williams (Ras Natango) purchased the land that would later hold ahhh… solely for the view. After years of pursuing his art, the land was terraced and a gallery built upon it. In 2009, the gallery and garden were well on their way to becoming a formal attraction. Ras is self taught. He reads extensively and prefers to work in acrylics. His paintings in the hotels are mainly of tropical flora. His art is now in every hotel Rius on the island, and in private collections in over 17 countries of the world.
