There are SO MANY things I can say about Daniel that I prefer not to say too much for fear of transforming this posting into an art critic's essay..Daniel would have hated it.
Daniel Melgarejo was a genius. I met him in our native Buenos Aires when he was twelve years old and I was a budding animator, we saw each other in Europe and I used to visit him in New York, where he died very young. Ours was a life time friendship. He was one of the most talented people I ever met. He could draw with both hands and often enough two different drawings at the same time. Everybody loved him and he made friends with people such as Marguerite Duras, Paloma Picasso, etc...Oh, God!!...There are a million stories I can tell about Daniel. His drawings are more eloquent than my words. I'll post some more soon.
