"The Market" - 50 x 20 cm

He was born in Cape Haiti on April 24, 1965. His father, a farmer, also made the clairin, the artisan rum, near Milot, a village that houses the ruins of what was the palace of Sans-Souci , the "Haitian Versailles" of King Henry Christophe.

Jean-Claude Blanc went to high school, then began his professional life as a mechanic, before joining the workshop "L'Arc en Ciel" where he began working in watercolour. In early 1983, he sold his first work...

He now lives in Port au Prince and lives on his art...

Jean-Claude Blanc's works have been a phenomenal success in Haiti in recent years, probably because better than any other, the artist strives to translate with stubborn optimism the festive character of Haitian society. Market scenes, carnival, Mardi Gras "rara" procession, peasants at work in provincial plantations... White, totally in line with the tradition of the "modern primitives" that have made Haitian painting famous, strives to describe the realities of the country in a style that makes the detail and precision of the drawing one of the characteristic signs of his Work.
