Kiptoo Fire Fund

Artsist , friend and neighbor Kiptoo Taurus lost his house and possessions last night because of a fire.

"Kiptoo Tarus works mainly as a sculptor, creating large wooden artworks, such as the work in front the Lyric Theater, and the giant hands that decorated Short Street during thee Breeders’ Cup in 2015."

“I lost everything,” Tarus said. “I lost all chain saws (for sculpting). I also draw and paint so all my portfolios were there.” (Herald Leader)

Kiptoo artwork reflects his philosophy "I have been able to locate within myself, and express through my work, a solid sense of humanity and serenity."

Anything helps big or small. Thank you! we appreciate you!
