My father began painting as a child in Basseterre, St. Kitts. He was commissioned early on and selling works he painted on found objects. Overtime he took on many trades; Emergency Medical Technician in the USVI, Truck Driver, Construction, and many other odd jobs supporting a family of 5. Kruma created a series of paintings spanning the last 20 years that cover topics from Sacred Geometry to Black History.
In 2017 Kruma was diagnosed with COPD, which eventually became Stage 4 Lung Cancer. Unable to work due to high-risk status in the COVID-19 Epidemic, unable to pay the co-pay necessary for Chemotherapy. This truly highlights the plight of individuals in America and all over the world.
At this point, September 2020, his treatment is stalled due to the high co-pay. He has to undergo chemo every 21 days, at a cost of 2000 per 4 treatments. Any support is welcomed. You can also contribute by purchasing art or his book on kkedar.com.
