I love Lucebert, not only for his amazing drawings and paintings, but because I feel I would have liked to’ve known him. He dropped out of art school after 6 months and took to the streets, homeless for 9 years from 1938-1947. People who give up everything have a special quality. When I dropped out of nursing I went to work at the Simon Hostel, a homeless shelter in Oxford, UK. It was one of my happiest times and the men I got to know and befriend there were some of the most lovely and interesting I have ever met. Lucebert was also a poet, an anti-apartheid activist, a family man and part of the COBRA group.
