Lafortune Felix was born in 1933 in Pond Sonde in Haiti. He lived in St. Marc where he was a farmer and formally a voodoo priest. The wall paintings that decorated his temple drew the attention of Pierre Monosiet, the late curator of the College Saint Pierre, Museum of Haitian Art. The artist began painting on masonite in 1972. Felix's inspiration came from his knowledge of the supernatural. Felix passed away silently on December 2016.
