About the Artist
BERNARD, JEAN ALBERT
Jn. Ablert Bernard -After finishing his schooling, Bernard moved from the remote city of Les Cayes, on Haiti’s southern peninsula, to the capital. In Port-au-Prince, surrounded by the colorful canvases of his fellow countrymen, he began painting, studying with Chikel until 1982.
Bernard does many different subjects but his fanciful paintings of black panthers, with their startled expressions (which often look as though they’ve been “caught” at something) have gained him wide and growing popularity.
