Collection: Nicolas Dreux (Haitian, 1956-2021)

On March 10, 1956, Nicolas Dreux was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and passed away in 2021. He began to paint as a student of both Calixte Henri in 1973 and Raymond Olivier. He works with a razor blade, laying on the paint thick in spots and scraping it to transparency elsewhere. After this, he accents some elements of the artwork with the corner of the blade. 

Dreux was traumatized during Aristide's violent governance and experimented with some difficulties of the mental type that slowed down his creation. He had recently started painting again and was doing beautiful art again before passing. Many fine art galleries showcase his unique art, and his name appeared in many art books.
