On tuesday our beloved friends were taken from us in a tragic state of events. Arlyn and Lulu Pillay were the lights that that lit up our path in the art world. Two people that expressed love and peace through their artwork. They taught us to take the pain of our past and put in a piece of art to create a new future. This Gofundme will help pay for the funeral expenses along with keeping both of their beloved art shops open. We hope that this will help to keep inspiring other artists to follow their dreams as Arlyn and Lulu would push us to do. If you wish to come by we will be open starting at 3:00 on Febuary the 1st .

RIP Arlyn Pillay . I'm so...shocked and saddened. You understood and supported the fact I finally had the freedom to pursue my degree. I met you about 6 years ago in frank and sons before you got your gallery. As the years go by, I saw that people are finally recognizing your talents that you started having your own gallery. You mixed video games and things that us nerds love and made your art classes fun with that. You perform too. You are so talented and I was so happy and proud that your dream finally came true! I looked to you and your success when i start to doubt my abilities. Too young to leave us and to leave in such a way breaks my heart. You have made a difference and touched many people's hearts. The art comminity had been robbed out of a wonderful talented artist. Rest in peace, my friend. You have the sky as your canvas now.

In my briefly enduring friendship with Arlyn, I could immediately sense that he was an astoundingly beautiful, intelligent, and enthusiastically caring person, in addition to being an extremely talented, versatile, and productive artist. It is shocking to me that I could lose such a rare breed as Arlyn or any one of my family or friends, faster than the bat of an eye with the mere shot of a gun. So I hold all of my kin a little tighter tonight with the radiant spirit of Arlyn and his mom to carry with me in a grieving embrace of the tragic, chaotic beauty of our own impermanence in this mysterious universe we are able to briefly yet profoundly experience together.

I'm in total shock. I'm just hearing about this tragedy. Last October I stopped in to her store and made a purchased. We began to talk and I instantly had a friend in LuLu. We attended The Rolling Stones concert that evening. It was her first concert she said.I would text her on holidays to say hi. I'm so sad over this. Gone way to soon. Beautiful soul.

Arlyn was such a talented artist. This is a terrible tragedy. I wrote an article about him years ago and have never forgotten him.
