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

Jimmy Romain, November 2009. (Photograph © Anthony Hart Fisher 2009).

Jimmy Romain is a member of the "Gran Rue" community of artists who live in the alleys and shanty towns off of the Grand Rue (officially the Boulevard Jean-Jacques Desallines), and make art out of "recycled materials" (otherwise known as trash. Originally the main shopping street of Port-au-Prince, the street was in an advanced state of decay when I last visited in Novemeber 2009. Two months later when "Goudou-Goudou", the great Haitian earthquake struck on January 12th, most of the buildings along the street were destroyed. One of the few mercies of this catastrophe was that most of the people in theses shacks survived the earthquake, since their shacks were mostly single-storey, and built of tin , wood and other relatively light materials.
