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

Julien Valery ( 1958 - July 2001 )

  • Julien Valery was born in 1958 in the small village of Coteau and was considered one of the most promising of the younger generation of Haitian artists. His paintings are anecdotal in subject, depicting such events as joyful weddings, magical ceremonies with mermaids, esoteric voodoo rituals and celebratory feasts. Both thoughtful and original, his work is also often humorous and startling, with hidden touches that might be missed at first glance.
  • Sadly, Julien Valery died in July 2001.
