Artisans of Haiti

During my time in Haiti, I came to know an artist by the name of Brutal Michel. He is part of a community of metal workers in Croix-des-Bouquets, just north of the capital city. He works with young apprentices to teach the trade, as he was taught by his aunt as a young man. Carved out of recycled oil drums, the artists use traditional folklore imagery to create compelling, emotive and detailed pieces – all by hand. The process is gritty, messy, time-consuming and laborious.
