I will be out of the country between May 10th and June 4th, 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 June 4th, 2024.

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. The service is not always as economical as it may appear, particularly on larger or more valuable shipments. USPS estimates only include insurance up to $100 for its domestic shipments, and varying amounts for overseas shipments. If you ask for full insurance we will recalculate the shipping cost and send you an invoice for any difference in cost.

Unfortunately we do not have any biographical information for this artist, except that he became associated with the Centre d'Art in Port-au-Prince, in the late 1960's (Island on Fire: Passionate Visions of Haiti from the Collection of Jonathan Demme, Jonathan Demme, Edwidge Danticat, Pebo Voss, Aboudja, Kaliko Press, Nyack, NY, 1997.).

Our painting was featured in the book Island on Fire: Passionate Visions of Haiti from the Collection of Jonathan Demme.
