“Ale Nan Bato L ‘” (Going to His Boat)
Murat Louis began selling his artwork in 1997 at a small shop in Pétionville, a small suburb in the northern hills of Port-au-Prince, Haiti . Using watercolor as his medium, he began painting Haitian village scenes in the 1960s with another Haitian artist. He has recently gained international recognition and is one of the few Haitian watercolor artists to achieve success. Murat hopes to expand his business by teaching “…children to paint so they can help their own families.” Murat supports his wife and growing family through sales of his paintings.
