One of the artists that displayed his wares at the Art Festival, Christopher Williams, has had a great turn of fortune recently. In fact, it took place only 6 days after his participation in our Art festival. Anyone who was at the festival will probably recognize him as the young man actively painting a portrait of famous Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, whose life story was portrayed by Salma Hayek in a 2002 movie titled “Frida”, near the entrance to the Festival. This Art Festival was Christopher’s first public display of his paintings and he treated us with being able to see him performing his talent.

It seems that Christopher likes to practice his talent by doing portraits of famous people he admires. One of his portraits was of a famous Hip-Hop artist named KRS-One. Christopher says that KRS-One is rare in this venue because he projects positive values. In fact, having lectured at Harvard, Yale, Vassar, Columbia, N.Y.U. and Stanford, KRS-One is nicknamed “THE TEACHER.”

It seems that the Saturday following the Art Festival, KRS-One has an engagement at the Elements in Downtown Sacramento. Christopher connected with KRS-One just before he went on stage and gave him the picture he had painted. KRS-One was stunned and showed his appreciation by bringing the picture on stage with him and giving Christopher the credit and performing a rap to Christopher and the picture. He connected with Christopher after the concert and asked him to do a series of black & whites for him.
