I will be working out of state this week, and so will not be shipping or open for vistors at the gallery.   The Indigo Arts website will be active as always, I will respond to emails, and I will be able to ship orders after October 26th.

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!

Ti Tra (Jean Fatreuse Delva)

About the Artist

Ti Tra, born Jean Fatreuse Delva, was a naif painter who lived in Port-au-Prince.  His mother gave him the nickname "Ti Tra", which means "Little Trash", as a child.  He bore the name gacefully for his whole life.  For many years he worked at the legendary gallery of Issa-el-Saieh, as a gatekeeper, gardener, gallery assistant and general handyman.  He assisted as many Haitian artists and countless artworks came and went, packed artwork to carry, and before long took up painting himself.  He created many lovely works, mostly of animals.  After Issa died in 2005 Ti Tra continued to work for Gallery El Saieh until he passed away in 2011.
