And more recently:
- Pierre Soulages ( of course!
- Anish Kapoor, English sculptor, for his patent purchase of a scientific feat: the most intense black in the world, the Vantablack
- the Coréan painter Lee Bae (

And so many others!

Of course my modest work cannot be compared to these immense artistes.
Take it as a very very humble contribution.
