Eset Leku immigrated to Canada as a refugee from Kosovo.He was an Art teacher their and remained in touch with his passion here. I 1st met Eset in Bastion Square selling his art and then he moved to the Causeway and created portraits of people. He worked and sold his creations for over 16 years in Victoria. Last week he passed and he will be missed by the artist community on the causeway, the GVHA and the public which he served so well over the years.
Enjoy all the excitement that comes with the dragon boat festival. The ship point market will be back next weekend :)
