Paintings by Haitian Artist

Wilson Bigaud
(1931-2010)

Born in 1931 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Wilson Bigaud began his career as a sculptor but later switched to painting. His famous mural "Wedding of Cana" in the Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Port-au-Prince was painted in 1950-51. He won second prize for his 1950 painting "Paradise" which was then purchased by the Metropolitan Museum of Art and is part of their permanent collection.  By the late 1950s he was suffering from severe depression and nearly stopped painting altogether but he began again in the early 1960s.  He is famous for depicting daily Haitian life, especially weddings. Wilson Bigaud, one of the last giants of the first generation of Haitian painters, died in Petit-Goâve, Haiti, on March 22, 2010. 

oire became an outstanding saxophone player in the National Guard Band until 1965 when he dedicated his life to painting at the urging of his friends Gerard Valcin and Préfète Duffaut. His naive scenes are usually filled with men, women and children seen only from the front.  He captures large gatherings such as processions for Carnival, school classes  and fiestas.    In an interview with Michele Grandjean for the book " Artistes en Haiti",  Grégoire is quoted as saying, " My life is a prayer and the painting is a sister to the prayer."
He died in Haiti on July 28. 2001.
