Wilson Bigaud is considered as one of the great masters of Haitian art. Born in 1931, he began his painting under the direction of famous Haitian pioneer, Hector Hyppolite when he was only fifteen years old. A golden light and warm colors characterized his early works. He used to paint wonderful, humorous paintings in the relative solitude of Petit Goave. Bigaud is represented in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York as well as in major art Galleries in Haiti and abroad. He passed away in 2010.
