This is the painting Listen by the Surinamese born artist Frank Creton. I looked at it and was touched. I see a simple but effective use of forms and colors. And of course my own imagination, fueled by my background as a African Caribbean man, who does enjoy the music, the beauty and the spirit of other black men.
