The Indigo Arts website has remained active over the last year and a half despite the widespread shutdowns due to the COVID-19 virus.   I have been able to resume regular operations.  I am able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Shipping times have increased during this period.  The gallery is open to visitors on an appointment only basis and according to city masking regulations.   Please phone or email ahead.  

Note:  USPS service remains very  slow.   I don't recommend it if you are in a hurry.   Please note also that USPS shipping estimates include little or no insurance, which we must charge separately.
Please stay safe!

Seymour E. Bottex

About the Artist

Seymour Etienne Bottex was born in Port-Margot, near Cap-Haitian, on Christmas eve day, December 24,1922. He began to paint in 1955, encouraged by his already renowned brother, Jean-Baptiste, and in 1961 joined the Centre d'Art. Bottex is best known for his biblical themes as well as scenes from historical events and Haitian life.

One of the "Old Masters" of Haitian painting, Bottex' works have been illustrated in many books and articles on Haitian and naive art. His colors and Modigliani-like female figures are unmistakable marks of his unique style, valued by knowledgable collectors. Bottex' works are on exhibit in the U.S., England, France (Espace Cardin), and Italy (Festival of Two Worlds - Spoleto), and have been sold through Sotheby's auction house in New York.

Seymour E. Bottex died on Monday May 16,2016, at the age of 93.
