Take a Deep Breath

Kiko Malbranche's avatar Kiko Malbranche

Kiko Malbranche is a young artist who grew up in Communist Cuba and has recently relocated to Guyana to further pursue art. Malbranche's body of work focuses on the revelation that even when we are not perfect, there is hope and life, through faith. Malbranche is informed by his faith, and creates art that reflects the tension of Earthly struggle with divine perfection. The artist states, "As an artist, this world needs to hear that we are here with a purpose on the Earth. Our path is not easy, but hope will change our point of view--being imperfect humbles every living person." Take a Deep Breath is the meeting of patience and wisdom--a physical and mental agreement for peace.
