I’ll be painting a large mural in Papeete, Tahiti in May this year. The Ono’u festival takes place for the first time and lots of international artists like Askew, Sofles, Inti, Dabs&Myla, Kems… will be present. Check out the festival’s website here!
Today it’s been 4 years since Sigi’s aka Dare’s passing. Every year I paint something for him. So this year I felt it was time to show something Dare painted for me in my blackbook back in 2007. He drew that sketch on his Birthday. Back then I spent a week with him in Basel, painting, talking, laughing, singing, hanging out at the Carhartt Gallery and becoming good friends with an artist I always had looked up to. He will always be missed, but never forgotten.
And here is a nice 5 minute arte creative video with a short interview with Dare:
