Garry Laurent

Born in 1972 in Pétion Ville, Garry Laurent began drawing at an early age. He sometimes reproduced cartoons. In 1992, he finished his classical studies and devoted himself to painting. A self-taught painter, he meets Ralph Allen, who teaches him certain techniques and methods to refine his art. In 2000, he is invited to take part in SYMBIOSE 2000 in the company of experienced artists such as Marithoux, Joseph Pierre Eddy, Pasko, Nixon St Hilaire. His meeting with Pasko was beneficial for his work since he invited him to join the drawing workshop organized by Galerie Monnin. That same year, he met the painter and collector Patrick Cauvin who offered him the opportunity to participate in several exhibitions and symposia both in Haiti and abroad through the Association for the Promotion of Haitian Art: PROMART HAITI. He is also Photographer and Moviemaker and collaborates with some TV stations in Haïti Garry makes his works sing as the sun shimmers the colors of his country. He likes to tackle subjects featuring characters and using  géometrical forms. Combining movement with color, solid matter, he searches for the teeming, bustling life in the Caribbean. The heat of Garry’s heart is reflected in each of his keys.
