The Andrew Square-based IJDH helps individual Haitians enforce their basic rights—in the courts, in police stations, and on the streets—in ways that force the justice system to work better for all Haitians. The featured artists all hail from Haiti and include Boston Haitian artists Charlot Lucien, Colette Brésilla, Renold Laurent, and Fritz Duchiene. The auction also features a self-portrait by up-and-coming artist, Mathieu Jeanbaptiste.
Jeanbaptiste lives in Carrefour Feuilles, Haiti and is an active member of the strong artistic community there. “We are united for the artist [dedicated] to giving one another color!” remarks Jeanbaptiste. He often finds inspiration from the works of Leonardo Da Vinci. via | Boston Haitian Reporter
