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!

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.
