The years in between were a whirlwind that shredded the artists dreams and scattered them around the globe from Cologne, London and Paris, to Saigon, Marseille, Lisbon and New York.Their saga contains episodes of searing passion, madness and betrayal when they made great art and lost, found and abandoned one another in the process.
