Philip's story is amazing and dramatic. The child of the biggest and most ruthless drug baron in the world, adopted by a member of the British Secret Service, sent to England to a boarding school, always under threat of kidnapping and ending up as a very pleasant man and excellent painter. His story is far too interesting not to be noticed. In August a book is being published to describe his life story, (a photograph of the book is the last of the images) and later there will be a film. When he has all this publicity, his paintings will be much more in demand.
