My dear friend and official Kule photographer, Mei Tao, recently went on a trip to Havana, Cuba. She went there for work and to take pictures using the colorful and historic backdrop of Havana. When she retuned she told me she discovered the artist, Kamyl Bullaudy Rodriguez, while painting in his studio. His doors were open, the light was perfect, and his studio contained a treasure trove of a man’s life’s work. She spoke with him and fell in love with his personality and his paintings. She offered him a Kule men’s stripe shirt in return for a photo of him in his colorful work space. He was thrilled and grateful. Mei ended up purchasing a few of his artworks to take back to New York. This is the beauty of travel, to discover and meet interesting people around the world and sometimes magical moments like these happen.
