Andre Alexander also known as @hip_pop_art was an inspirational artist, loving father to his beautiful little girl, a gentleman who left a smile on everyone's face, and a memorable presence to those he met along the way.

On October 8th, 2018 - Andre's life was tragically taken away from a hit-and-run while riding on his skateboard (view news link for story: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/skateboarder-injured-in-north-york-hit-and-run-1.4854385). He leaves behind his young daughter and family, who he loved with all of his heart. It is with deep sadness that we are saying "Farewell" to a beloved man that everyone adored. 

We are reaching out to everyone who can help his family at this difficult time.
