Roberto Griot is a masterful painter who is renowned for his powerful Afro-Brazilian subject matter and unique style.
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. When we were finished he called in his two sons, put his arms around them and said '"these two are my favorite creations."
Sadly he passed away July 1, 2015. His studio and gallery are in the Pelourinho District of Salvador da Bahia, Brasil.
