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.

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 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.

Lafortune Felix

About the Artist

Lafortune Felix 1933 – 2016
Lafortune Felix was born in Pont-Sondé, Haiti in 1933. He started to paint in 1974 after he was encouraged to do so by Pierre Monosiet, who was at that time the director of the Musée d'Art Haitien du Collège St Pierre. He was one of the last great painters from the Artibonite region.

His artwork has been shown at many exhibits worldwide among them in Haiti, Europe, Canada and the USA. In 2012, it was part of the Nottingham contemporary exhibit, “Kafou: Haiti, art and Vodou” organized in England. He generously donated his artwork to raise funds for the repair of the Musée d’Art Haitien du College St Pierre.

With deep sadness we learned Lafortune Felix passed away a few weeks ago in Haiti.
It’s a great loss for the art world in Haiti and abroad. 
Our deepest sympathies to his family and friends.
