The Indigo Arts website has remained active over the last year and a half despite the widespread shutdowns due to the COVID-19 virus.   I have been able to resume regular operations.  I am able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Shipping times have increased during this period.  The gallery is open to visitors on an appointment only basis and according to city masking regulations.   Please phone or email ahead.  

Note:  USPS service remains very  slow.   I don't recommend it if you are in a hurry.   Please note also that USPS shipping estimates include little or no insurance, which we must charge separately.

Joseph Oldof Pierre

About the Artist

Joseph Oldof Pierre - Port-au-Prince, Haiti, 1991 (photo by Anthony Fisher)

Oldof was born 1955, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Oldof followed in the footsteps of his father as a practitioner of Vodou. According to Tina Girouard, he determined to become a houngan after being cured of a series of illnesses by his father's treatments. He actively pursued the sequin art from 1980, the year of his father's death, until his own untimely death in 1994. Like many collectors, we first met Oldof selling his work outside the Museé d'Art Haitien in Port-au Prince. His work is published in Sequin Artists of Haiti (Girouard, 1994) and Sacred Arts of Haitian Vodou (Cosentino, 1995). (Biographical information adapted from Tina Girouard's Sequin Artists of Haiti )
