The Indigo Arts website has remained active during the widespread shutdowns due to the COVID-19 virus.  We have had to limit our activities since the March 23rd "Stay at Home" order in Philadelphia.  Under current rules I have been able to resume most operations but still must limit visitors to the gallery, by appointment only.   I am monitoring orders and responding to inquiries.  I am now able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Please stay safe!

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 )
