Artists: Roger François

Roger François
Roger François was born in Petite-Riviere de l'Artibonite, Haiti, in October, 1928. Before becoming a painter, François was a sculptor and student of Odilon Duperier. François is a houngan, and needless to say is deeply involved in Vodou in his daily life and in his art. As such, his paintings are characterized by subtle occult and mystical symbolism, as well as more obvious voudou scenes.

Internationally reknowned, François' works have been exhibited in Belgium, Germany, the U.S., and France. His paintings have been on permanent exhibition in the Brussels Museum since 1963. Within the last many years, he has been seized upon by collecters, who see his versatility, use of color, and elegance of style as promises of greatness.

The artist died in 2013.
