  • Gorgeous acrylic painting by FRANCIS PARAISON

Framed, signed and dated 1993

Contemporary Canvas Art:  Original Color Haitian Montage Black Americana 
painting is in great condition. Signed & dated by the artist, Francis Paraison, 1993 (see pictures)

Bought directly from the artist in New York in 1993 (there are no doubts of authenticity - painting was purchased by our business partner and was in his possession since the date of acquisition)



Information on the artist:  "Francis Paraison migrated to the United States of America twenty four years ago from Haiti. His interests in art began at a very young age, and he attributed this to the fact that his mother always had art around the house, and a garage full of them. He began painting and selling them as early as the age of seven (7). He then had some professional training at "The French Institute of Haiti"; he resided in Carnarsie Brooklyn and had about four (4) rooms full of his exotic paintings. Mr. Paraison had traveled to many parts of the world including France. England, Japan, Switzerland and Germany where he has displayed and sold many fine pieces of art . He has also been featured or mentioned in numerous publications both here in the US and in many of the countries he has traveled to including "The New Yorker" Magazine January, 18th 1988"

Mr. Paraison was fond of saying about his homeplace, Haiti: "I paint my land, my country as I see it." He passed away in 2001.

His paintings were selling in 2000 between $7,000 - 30,000 and are now worth more since his passing.

Please make sure this EXACTLY what you/the intended gift recipient want especially at this price. Our ultimate goal is to make our customers happy but oursales are not trial and errorsales for you to find out if you "might" like the item or if the items suits you/the intended gift recipient.



Additional info: Macy's (the deparment store) is helping Haitian artists get back to work by launching the Heart of Haiti home decor collection.

At the end of June, the department store purchased 20,000 products from local artists ranging from trays to vases and other decorative objects. And to ensure the artists they'd make money, Macy's paid them in cash up front. The range of products are already available online and can also be purchased at select Macy's stores across the US.

The creative Haitians are hoping American consumers are receptive to their hand-crafted products and are already working on collection ideas for the spring.
