I was able to visit my Grandpa today and discover my uncle was a painter that brought peace to the community in the 70s. Young men were dieing from gang violence, so he decided to use art to speak to his friends and enemies. I always thought I was the only creative person in my family, it’s nice to find out that my uncle is an artist.
