About this artist
Haitian painter, Harry Jacques, was born in Gonaives on August 11, 1937. After completing his secondary studies, Arijac studied architecture with the International Correspondence School.
From 1962 to 1963, he was a draftsman with the research department of architect Sacha Thebaud and was employed by the Agriculture Department’s school construction division from 1962 to 1975. In 1965 he exhibited his first works at the American Institute, then in 1967 at the French Institute and the Sao Paulo biennial. In 1975 he participated in several exhibitions in New York. Arijac’s work is on permanent exhibit at the ruelle Nazon in Port-au-Prince. Sacha Thebaud taught Arijac to paint with the encaustic method, using a mixture of beeswax, turpentine, and pigment, a technique widely used from Alexander the Great's time to the seventh century A.D. He exhibited in 1965 with the Haitian-American Institute. He also showed in Haiti and New York at Wolfe International, Italy, and the USA.
