As a result of government changes the immigration status of the business has been temporarily declined. Without immigration papers Plastic Flamingo can not re-open in November 2014 as planned. You will be able to find our art elsewhere around... More

If you need to buy some stuff as souvenirs,... More

I was on holiday here with my bf recently and I totally wondered into this shop by accident, but was immediately blown away by the cool local art here. Very Frida Kahlo style stuff. I bought a t-shirt and a painting and a couple of little things for friends back home. I got talking to the resident artist there who... More
