Haiti: Spirit of Nostalgia

Eric Girault

ARTIST STATEMENT

My work depicts the social issues of everyday life of the humble. I introduced the Neo-Impressionism style that best suits my emotions to express my views. My palette is somber. It is a mixture of green, blue, ochre, white, brown and sometimes orange, that some critics describe as pastel tones. My visual style and selection of colors has remained constant since my early days in Haiti when I received the edit from my mentor, Lazar to “never change it, not even for gold”.
