Artist from Haiti - Edger Jean-Baptiste

(1917 - 2002)
Born in Bainet, Haiti

Edger Jean-Baptiste was born in 1917 in Bainet. Originally a cobbler and a tailor, Jean-Baptiste and his wife raised five daughters and two sons, one of whom is now deceased. Before joining the Centre d'Art in 1954 with the help of Micius Stephane, he occasionally painted village scenes and characters on the surface of sun-bleached rocks chosen from the extraordinary Bay of Bainet shoreline. The rocks themselves were worn to an incredible smoothness by the endless tidal movement of the surf. read more
