With a distinctive style and innovative capacity that doesn't quit, Jean Eugene Remy is definitely an artist on the rise. He makes great use of three dimensional imagery and his sculptures are filled with action and detail. Born in 1984 in Port-au-Prince, his mother was already a widow with 3 small boys to feed.
At the age of six, he began working the iron cut for people, eventually apprenticing in the workshop of Julio Balan. (US) Though he is Catholic, it is not uncommon in Haiti to blend Catholic and Voodoo practices and symbolism. The two are quite compatible in the traditional Haitian view. In 2009, he participated in a Sirena exhibition in the Dominican Republic and two years later, travelled to Eaton, Florida as a guest artist. There he demonstrated his craft at the Zora!
Festival of Arts and Humanities, where the theme for the year was Remembering Haiti. Jean Eugene has a vision of art as his lifes work.
