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. If you ask for full insurance we will recalculate the shipping cost and send you an invoice for any difference in cost.

Thialy (Ermistral Charles)

About the Artist

Thialy (1937 - ?)

Born in May, 1937, Ermistral Charles is known by the "nomme de guerre" of Thialy.  He started painting in 1973, and became known for a style of sgrafitto painting, with detailed linework scratched into the surface of the oil paint.  His work has been exhibited worldwide. Two of his paintings were in the show, "Haiti: Art Naif, Art Vaudou" at the Grand Palais in Paris in 1988 and are published in the catalog of the same name.  He lived in the village of Kenscoff, above Port-au-Prince.  I understand that Thialy is deceased, but I have not found a record of the date.
