Port-au-Prince, b. 1996.

In November, 2017 Herold posted online an interview which Adolf Alzuphar conducted with him:

 I interviewed Herold. He was a gracious interviewee. I hope that his art can find an audience in the US, as the art of a changing city, fighting to stay alive and to make a life out of its present.
1. I love your paintings. Do you only paint?
I’m mainly a painter, but I also sculpt. I started painting at 6 and now I’m 21; I’ve been painting for most of my life.
2. What is your painting process, as in how do you generally conceptualize a piece of art, and then how do you execute?
I generally think of my paintings as a story and execute them as storytelling. I often write that story out, either on the painting itself or as the painting’s description.
3. You paint figuratively. What inspires the figures in your paintings?
They are purely figments of my imagination.
4. You are great with color. What inspires your color choice, especially of pink and of yellow?
I just love those two colors. They speak up about my ambitions to be exhibited, but also my living conditions.
5. What’s your great ambition as an artist?
To be exhibited in a gallery with as much of an appreciation for Haitian art as I have. I am also a teacher; I teach kids to paint and would love to continue to do so with more impact.

 

Region:

I will be out of town from October 22nd through October 30th and the gallery will be closed.  Indigo Arts will be taking orders online as usual, and I will respond to email but not shipping before November 1st.  Thank you for your patience.
