Over the last year the Indigo Arts website has remained active despite the widespread shutdowns due to the COVID-19 virus.   Under current rules I have been able to resume operations but must limit visitors to the gallery, by appointment only.   I am able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Shipping times have increased during this period.  

Note:  USPS has been so slow that we still recommend avoiding it entirely, at least for the present.  Parcels sent by 2 or 3 Day Priority Mail can take 2 to 4 weeks to arrive.
Please stay safe in these difficult times.  
We wish you all a healthier, saner and more civil 2021.

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.
