Haitian paintings by Jean Emmanuel

Emmanuel is a journeyman painter of the Artibonite school, most of whom use a variation on the style of the patriarch, Saincilus Ismael. He was born in Petite Riviere de L'Artibonite on August 1,1965 and sold his first paintings to the Galerie Mapou in 1982. After the departure of Jean-Claude Duvalier in 1986 his work became less innocent and he began to paint scenes that were inspired by actual political and social events. His current works often include titles and slogans. The paintings are still patterened and colorful in the Artibonite manner, but now often have a message.
