The Art of Haiti


Presently, Haiti is well represented by talented self-taught as well as formally trained artists. Various artists from Port-au-Prince to the Provinces including three members of Saint Soleil: Prospere Pierre Louis, Levoy Exil, and Loui Saint-Fleurant draw inspiration from Voodoo beliefs and practice. Other artists, whose styles vary from naïve to impressionistic, include Pascale Monnin, Frantz Zepherin, and Avril Forest. Other works in this collection include iron sculpture and beaded Drapo Voodoo flags. Tara Griffin, curator of the Haitian Art Exhibition, has lived in Haiti for three years. As an independent agent with the prestigious “Galerie Monnin” in Petion-ville, she works directly with artists and has developed acute understanding of the creative energy fueling Haitian art. The “Gallery Monnin” has been in operation for over 40 years, working very closely with prestigious artists such as Simil, Senatus, and Yves Michaud.
