Collection: Charles Obas (Haitian, b.1927-1969)

Charles Obas was born in Plaisance, in the north of Haiti in 1927. He died in 1969. Obas’ artistic career began at the Art Center in 1948, which he left two years later to found the Hall of Plastic Arts. His work is exhibited in Haiti, the United States, and South America. He won First Prize at the ONT Competition in 1958. While pursuing his painting career, Obas was an equally talented musician. An artist of great sensitivity, he painted canvases characterized by scenes of rain and monochromes in grey.  (Biographical Info from Peinture Haitienne/ Haitian Arts by Marie-José Nadal and Gérald Bloncourt, Editions Nathan, Paris 1986 and Haiti Voodoo Kingdom to Modern Riviera by John Allen Franciscus)
