Note:
With the high cost of shipping many of our customers choose to ship by USPS. For small and light shipments this is usually less expensive, but please be aware that their estimates are often wrong and only include insurance up to $100 for its domestic shipments. If you ask for full insurance we will recalculate the shipping cost and send you an invoice for any difference in cost.

I will be away from the gallery between July 10th and July 19th, and so will not be shipping or open for visitors at the gallery. The Indigo Arts website will be active as always. I will respond to emails as soon as possible. I will be able to ship orders after July 19th, 2024.

About the Artist

Gary Darius
Gary Darius

Born in Croix-des-Bouquets in 1969, he speaks Creole and French.  He was the son of Andre Darius (a cabinet-maker) and of Laura Edmond (a seamstress).  His uncles are cabinet-makers with the exception of one who is a cobbler.  Gary was born a Catholic.  At the age of four he was converted to the Baptist Church.  Since the age of 8, he has regularly attended thebTemple of the Kingdom of Jehovah's Witnesses, and has even become one of their preachers.  ...  

For many years, Gary lived on and uncle's property where Janvier and Serener Louisjuste's workshop used to be.  The kay, made of dirt and corrugated iron, was quite modest.Since 1986, Gary has moved away from Noailles.  he lives with his family on a small property where there are tall, leafy trees that bring him shade and coolness.  Gary started to hammer at he age of four,r, and at the age of eight he was already tracing out designs.  He works either on commission or through his personal inspiration.  "As far as I am concerned, this inspiration comes from above, because nobody can be inspired without,t the guidance of a spirit."  Even though he asserts: "I am not much of a Voodooist, I don't know anything about it"  most of his work is inspired by voodoo.
