Art Haiti


Here are a few of my Haitian colleagues in the field of art and illustration. Artists share many things, but the most significant is the burden of carrying the weight of the world within our souls and the struggle to let it out through our various media.



Alix Delinois
See his amazing work here.

Alix Delinois is a brilliant illustrator and fine artist. On his site you will find pieces of both. Make sure you check out his beautiful yet simple ink drawings of scenes of St. Marc, Haiti. Most recently, Mr. Delinois has been in the press for his illustrations in Eight Days, A Story of Haiti, by Edwidge Danticat. Buy the book, quick!
