After a five month stay in hospital, well-known international artist and poet, David-Baptiste Chirot (birth name, David Harris) began, in the late 1980’s, a new phase in his artistic journey at River View apartments in Milwaukee Wisconsin with artworks, films, writing, only to have it interrupted in early June 2021 by his untimely death. Friends and fellow artists/writers helped piece together this in-memoriam from notebooks, files, loose pages and artworks, salvaged from his apartment, and with works inspired by his art, writings, and their memories of father, brother, friend, artist, writer, poet & visual poet, David-Baptiste Chirot (b.1953 – d.2021).

farewell to david-baptiste chirot

It’s impossible for me to say how sad I feel in reading now that artist and friend David-Baptiste Chirot has passed away.

We started talking, and exchanging works via the net, in 2006-2007, if I’m not wrong.
He’s been contributing for years to my blogs, like fluxishare.blogspot.com, and free online editions (like differxhost: https://it.scribd.com/doc/22212352/D-B-Chirot-Killer-Chrome or gammm: https://it.scribd.com/doc/22218970/chirot-death-from-this-window or slowforward: https://slowforward.net/2009/07/26/david-baptiste-chirots-ghost-dancers/).

Farewell, David. I’ll go on admiring your works and sharing them.
