Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving!

The Indigo Arts website has remained active during the widespread shutdowns due to the COVID-19 virus.   Under current rules I have been able to resume 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.   Shipping times, particularly by USPS, have increased during this period.  Please stay safe!

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.
