Mr. Cool and His Eyes

Artist's Statement:

Coelho’s statement fits the eyes of my son, who was the model for both of these portraits.

As for the passage from Hugo, B’H’ my son is not poor, but those who know him would agree that the stars do pass through his soul.

What Is Love?

I have met in the streets a very poor young man who was in love.

His hat was old, his coat worn, the water passed through his shoes

and the stars through his soul.

Victor Hugo

~ on children ~


In every child who is born, under no matter what circumstances,

and no matter what parents, the potentiality of

the human race is born again.
