One of our singular experiences at FOG was meeting Mamade Kadreebux and his subsequent show with Anne in November 2016. Born on the tiny island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, he embarked on an epic worldwide journey that ended in Berkeley.
It is with great sadness that we learned of his passing at the end of last year. He was the real deal - and spending time with him was a miraculous and enlightening experience. The month of his show was extraordinary - his one of a kind photos and paintings, his five books, his lovely entourage from the Berkeley community he led, and his irrepressible presence. He was a true spiritual leader and an inspiring artist - he touched us all and left the world a better place. -Peter
