The French Cultural Center is thrilled to welcome the Haitian artist Frantz Zéphirin for a month long exhibition. The show will display 12 works of Zéphirin, the animal painter, - “an historic animal painter”, as he calls himself.  Zéphirin, with his very charming smile, has said: "Look, in every man there is an animal, a monkey, an elephant, a crocodile, a giraffe ... I see them in a gesture, an attitude, a personality trait and immediately I fix them on my canvas.”

In this exhibit, Zéphirin uses bold, bright colors and patterns to create surreal portraits. Many of his characters feature animal heads with human bodies. Zéphirin generally creates these anthropomorphic creatures to portray and criticize human traits and behaviors. His imagination is extensive, and in his visual language he does not differentiate between art and life. He paints what we may think but often fear to put into words.

This exhibition is curated by Michelle Alfred – EMHART with the support of Patrice Dilly – Espace Loas.
