This news, passed on to us by the Toussaint Louverture Cultural Foundation: With deep sadness we learned Lafortune Felix passed away a few weeks ago in Haiti.
It’s a great loss for the art world in Haiti and abroad.
Our deepest sympathies to his family and friends.
I am always intrigued by the street art I find when I travel, whether signage graphics, informal grafitti or intentional and officially sanctioned murals. On my trip to Peru in April I had been tipped off by my friend Scott Rothstein, so I was particularly interested to see what I would find.
Notes on a trip to Peru - A visit to the studio of Claudio Jimenez Quispé
Monday, May 9, 2016 - 12:00am
I've just returned from a visit to Peru. Eleven days is not much time for a country the size of Peru, but it allowed me a few days in Lima - visiting markets, museums and some artists' studios, and an excursion to Cusco and the Sacred Valley, including Machu Picchu.
I will be traveling to Peru over the next two weeks. The gallery will be open for its usual hours, and we will be monitoring emails and online orders. But we will not be shipping out again before May 2nd. My apologies for any inconvenience.
