His native country serves as inspiration for colorful creations
Haitian artist Edouard Duval-Carrié welcomes VOA to his studio in Miami’s Little Haiti neighborhood.
Duval-Carrié focuses his art on Haitian themes. He says he used Internet images of various bacteria to create this work.
“They’ve been saying that Haitians carry all sorts of diseases,” he says. “So I’m playing with the idea.”
Duval-Carrié’s work often depicts figures from the Voodoo religion, which was created by African slaves brought to Haiti in the 16th century.
