Riduan Tomkins (1941 - 2009)

Many Ilam trained painters, who were taught by Riduan in the late eighties and early nineties, will mourn his passing.

I had the HUGE honour of having Riduan as a professor when I was an art student in Ontario, Canada. He was an amazing teacher, a hilarious guy and all around cool-dude. I am shocked to hear he has passed. I have many fond memories.
