About this artist

Philippe is a Haitian graphic artist and painter. Born in Port-au-Prince in 1954, Dodard worked as an advertising illustrator. His works have been exhibited throughout Europe and the Americas. He received the first prize in drawing at the Junior Seminary of St-Martial's College in 1966. He studied at the Poto Mitan Art School with Jean-Claude "Tiga" Garoute, Patrick Vilaire, and Frido Casimir. In 1973, he entered the Academy of Fine Arts. Then he worked as a layout artist and founded an audiovisual graphic arts studio. In 1978, he received a scholarship to the International School in Bordeaux, France, enabling him to specialize in Pedagogic Graphic Design. Two years later, he received a scholarship from the Rotary International Foundation and left on tour with the Group Study Exchange of Haiti to give conferences on Haitian culture. His artwork includes large sculptures, fine ironworks, and fine jewelry designs. His paintings have inspired American fashion designer Donna Karan's 2012 Spring collection and a joint exhibition with her at the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami in Miami, Florida.
