I was truly honored for the opportunity to visit The Brick Lane Gallery in London for Alexander Dakers solo exhibit. Each painting told a unique story into the artist's creative mind, showing elements of love, passion, joy, music, film, compassion and even sorrow. Alexander Dakers used inspiration from his grandfather's personal experience of being a prisoner of war, using elements from his family's bravery during that time of hardship and suffering. Alexander's solo exhibit at The Brick Lane Gallery had the most guests ever recorded at the gallery’s history. During his VIP event Alexander was given the London arts award for his outstanding accomplishments in his endless contribution to charities presented on behalf of the mayor of London. I was touched and honored to see a painting of my book Louisiana Latte among his paintings in the exhibit.
