Piracasso, Petizil Durand, was born in Pétion-Ville, a suburb of Port-au-Prince, Haiti on May 22, 1971. He began painting in 1989 and took on the name of Piracasso in homage to his idol Pablo Picasso. There have been hundreds of “market painters” since master Laurent Casimir painted the archetype in the early 1960's; however, Piracasso is one, of only a handful of artists, who have painted the subject in an original style.
