Roberto Griot is a masterful painter who is renowned for his powerful Afro-Brazilian subject matter and unique style. <br />
During our session he spoke about creativity and the meaning of his work, which he hoped 'would cause a revolution based on love.' Meanwhile his two sons played in the different rooms of the second story studio.
