This blog post seeks to present this artist's unique technique and approach, and encourage readers to pay closer attention to his work.

Le 28 octobre 1886, New York inaugurait la statue de la liberté, emblème de l’amitié franco-américaine et symbole de liberté et de démocratie. L’occasion de revisiter l’histoire d’un ouvrage qui, pour des millions de réfugiés et d’immigrants européens fuyant par bateaux l’oppression et la misère, marquait la promesse d’un avenir… Continue

New York n’est pas qu’une « concrete jungle », thanks to Central Park…qui a failli ne jamais voir le jour pour cause de réduction des budgets publics! Achevé en 1866 au terme de quinze ans de projet, le parc fut d’abord envisagé le long de l’East River.

When I lived in Brooklyn, I adored mon petit quartier français: my little French neighborhood nestled into Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens. We enjoyed French cafés, bars and restaurants, and even heard little school children speaking French in the streets as there is a bilingual school in the area: P.S. 58 …

We are two teachers, one in Saint-Marc, Haiti and one in New York City, USA, who are dedicated to the education of young girls in Haiti.

The title of our project, "Ayiti Cheri", is Haitian Creole for "Haïti Chérie". We wanted the name of the project to be in Haitian Creole, because it is the first language of the children we teach. Children are expected… Continue
