Lucien Joel is a phenomenal visual artist born on the Island of Ayiti. He considers himself a Miniaturist. Indeed, his paintings show an overall picture of Ayiti that is very futuristic. When looking at his artworks, the mind does not require a stretch of the imagination to envision a greener Haitian Landscape. Most fine arts connoisseurs see Lucien, like a student of the great Préfète Duffaut. Thus Lucien describes in his paintings the relationship between the earth, people and space. Moreover his paintings display geometric and intricate circular designs, with vivid colors, and clear blue backgrounds.
Sylvestre Telfort was raised in Haiti with a multi-artistically talented large family. He began his painting experience on the knees of his older realistic artist brother Rousseau Telfort. His early classic education started at the historic Lycée Alexandre-Pétion middle school. Then he moved onto Breaubrun Ardouin High School. He continued to develop his skills at home until his college years at Gerald-A-Joseph. Eventually, Telfort made a leap and exposed himself to new ways of creating with his brush or palette knife while attending Art School at Poto Mitan. Under the tutelage of Jean-Claude Garoute (Tiga) and Wilfrid Austin Casimir (Frido) Sylvestre was able to expand his knowledge and refine his craft. Telfort has caught the attention of many art collectors as they recognize his unique style and eye for the natural and abstract. When asked, Telfort will tell you his favorite artist is Salvador Dali. Additional information on Telfort is available in the Haitian Museum 2003 List Book.
