About this artist

Gesner Armand was born in 1936 in Croix-des Bouquets. He was initiated into drawing and watercolor at the Centre d'Art in 1956 and was granted a scholarship by the French Government in 1961 to study art in Paris. He lived in Paris for two years and returned to the Croix des Bouquets. He was the Musee d'Art Haitien curator in Port-au-Prince for several years. He studied art both in Paris and Mexico. As a renowned Haitian painter, he has exhibited in Haiti, Mexico, the United States, Paris, Spain, Jamaica, Martinique, Venezuela, Barbados, the Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, and Israel. He is known for his luminous country scenes and pigeons, and although his still lives reveal an undeniable Mexican Influence, his art reflects his intense love for his country, Haiti. Armand passed on June 10, 2008.

"Armand's substantial work rests upon a mastery of color effects and a pure drawing." ( Peintres Haitiens, Gerald Alexis).
