(1968 - )
Born in Cap-Haitian, Haiti

 

Frantz Zephirin started painting in 1973 with the Haitian master Antoine Obin, but quickly pulled away from the stylized school of the Cap-Haitian artists. His highly creative style, which deals with themes of political, social, and voodoo subjects, soon captured the attention of the art world in Haiti and his career took off very rapidly.

Zephirin's work is characterized by intense colors, intricate patterns and tightly surrounded compositions. Extremely productive, his imagination is compelling and his social criticism is disturbing. Presently Zephirin's work is recognizable by human figures with animal heads--representing his deep contempt for the commanding body.
