An incredible artist, loyal husband and father, devoted son, and brother, Natiq will be missed by many who knew him and his craft.

He was loved and will be mourned by his wife, children, family, and art collective, The Coloured Section. As his loved ones reflect on their memories and process their grief, they ask that everyone please respect their privacy. Formal announcements surrounding all arrangements are posted below.
In life, Natiq loved uplifting others, creating spaces to cultivate not only his talents but that of our Black youth, and creating unique and original exhibits with his loving wife.
