In Memoriam

As the year comes to a close, we would like to remember and honour the invaluable contributions of the artists we have lost this year.

To highlight a few, Fernando Botero was a Colombian figurative artist and sculptor known for his signature style “Boterismo,” which depicts people and figures in large exaggerated volume. Kwame Braithwaite, an American photojournalist and activist, was known for popularizing the phrase “Black is Beautiful” while documenting life and culture in Black communities. French Post-War painter Françoise Gilot, in turn, was celebrated for her bestselling memoir Life with Picasso as well as an array of other artistic accomplishments.

Although they are gone, these artists’ legacies will continue to inspire us. If you would like to learn more about any works included, please do not hesitate to reach out.
