Today, (it’s August 12th at 12:49am est)…. on the 26th anniversary of the day your bright star fell from the sky…. I reflect on what your life has meant to me and indeed to all who study and admire you. It is hard to believe you have been gone nearly as long as you were here. I was only 12 years old when your candle burned out, and I wouldn’t learn of your work until 4 years later, and then only briefly in advanced art in high school. Now, as an adult, I’ve come to realize that the more I learn about the man you were, the more amazing your paintings and drawings become. It is very apparent that you did not simply live life, you truly and passionately experienced it; with every sense and at a very high level that most people will never reach. I don’t believe you were ever fully aware of the impact you had (and continue to have) on the world during your time here with us. Jean- Michel…..you are to my generation what Andy was to yours. You are our ever radiant, genius child. Sadly, the city you knew as New York is nearly gone. The rough edges have been ground smooth; the blemishes and grit have been bleached away and many of the great, odd places and unique crevices have homogenized into a sea of Starbucks. Even Pearl Paints has tragically closed its doors. One exception, however, is the carriage house at 57 Great Jones Street. Although its facade is now whitewashed, it remains as your spirit remains…… with us still. Maestro, you were truly ahead of your time. The complexity, intensity and vulnerability of both your work and your life are my greatest inspiration. Thank you for allowing us to see the world through your beautiful kaleidoscope.…Tu nous manques cher …Te amamos siempre …Rest well Jean-Michel.
