Remembering the Artist Known as Prince
Yesterday the world suffered the loss of one of our most beloved musicians, Prince. But more than a musician, Prince was an artist. By example he lead his fans and his community in the pursuit of personal truth, inspiring everyone he touched to follow the path that was their bravest.
Since Prince’s passing yesterday, the entire world has cried out. It has become a conversation of collective remembrance, paying homage and respect to an artist who touched so many. The artists at B&A are a part of that conversation and we’ve collected their work here. Some was created while Prince was still with us, like Platon’s photographs and Victor Gadino's digital painting that covered New York's Village Voice. While others have been created in response to his passing.
We will continue to collect our artists’ work here and encourage you to share your own. Prince’s legacy was to heighten the way we communicate with each other, we will all honor his memory by doing exactly that.
Rest in Peace.
