It's Cactus Metal Art Haiti. Handmade Haitian Decor, Mermaid Worshipping Sun, Metal Folk Art 19x35in. These wonderful sculptures are handmade from 55 gallon oil drums in Haiti. The steel drums vary from brown to grey to black.As such, colors will vary on each, unique piece. Thank you for supporting our artists. Tender, sensuous, ethereal figures characterize the work of John Sylvestre.
The forms of his mermaids and angels are almost otherworldly, serenely defying the cold, hard steel from which they are made. Under the sea, in the heavens, in the forests and fields of rural Haiti, in the mythology of the ancients, and in the most fantastic reaches of the mind, there is nowhere too far to stretch.
Maybe its because hes been at it so long. Since 1968, at the age of 11 when he first picked up a hammer in the workshop of Janvier Louisjuste, John Sylvestre has been pushing the boundries of creative expression. But curiously, despite training with Louisjuste and later with Serge Jolimeau, he doubted his ability.And not have those dancing, soaring, floating, sailing images in steel? That would have been a shame. The item "Handmade Haitian Decor, Mermaid Worshipping Sun, Metal Folk Art 19x35in" is in sale since Thursday, October 8, 2020.
