On June 28, 2017 one of our most beloved and talented Kara for Akaso artist Gusho passed away. A rather shy fellow yet who could often make the whole bunch laugh with his fine humour. A bee keeper, in his late 30s and father of four children. Died from rabies.
Here we pay tribute to his work - he was a key member of the founding Kara for Akaso co-creation workshop. He favoured graphic designs.
Gusho, farewell my friend. Rest in peace.
