Andre Pierre was born around 1916 in Port-au-Prince. He was a farmer and an active vodou practitioner before being introduced to the Centre d'Art in the late 1940's by film-maker Maya Deren, who had admired his temple wall paintings. Pierre eventually became a vodou priest internationally noted for his highly respected visualizations of the vodou pantheon of deities in his paintings. He continued to paint in his family compound/vodou community located in Croix-des-Missions on the outskirts of Port-au-Prince. In 1996, Pierre was the gold Medal Winner at the 5th Venezuelan Biennale.
