Market Day

Indigo Arts' Philadelphia gallery space is closed as I move upstairs to a new space on the fourth floor of the Crane Building.  I hope to be up and running again later in May, on a "by appointment or by chance" basis.  Meanwhile, the Indigo Arts online gallery is operating as usual, though shipments may be delayed a bit.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions in the mean time.

Thanks,

Tony

Pierre-Joseph Valcin (Port-au-Prince, Haiti)
Oil on Canvas (20 x 24), c.1995

Pierre-Joseph Valcin, c.1994

Pierre-Joseph Valcin was born in Port-au-Prince in 1925. Valcin worked as a mechanic and stone mason before becoming a painter. Valcin began to paint after he was introduced to the Centre d’Art by his half-brother, the late painter Gerard Valcin, in 1959. Gerard Valcin instructed Pierre-Joseph for his first year at the Centre d’Art. While much of his work owes a debt to Gerard’s instruction, it was always looser, less stylized and more intuitive than his master’s. Pierre-Joseph continued to paint through the 1990’s. He passed away in 2000.
