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 notoriously 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. 

Jorelus Joseph

About the Artist

Jorelus Joseph was born on December 8, 1939 in Leogane, Haiti. His father was a farmer and his mother was a hairdresser. He lived in the countryside until he finished primary school, then he moved to Petionville to learn to be a pastry chef. He claimed to be able to make a wonderful cake. During this time he had a second job as a packer at the Centre d'Art.  He did not paint his first painting until age 43. His source of inspiration wass Vodou. He was a practitioner and attended ceremonies on a regular basis, but was not an initiate, claiming that it would require him to devote all of his time to the religion. He was awarded a gold medal in October 1996 from the 3rd Bienal of Caribbean and Central American Artists at the Museum of Modern Art of the Dominican Republic in Santo Domingo.  Jorelus passed away in 2009.
