1933 is known for his vibrant, colorful scenes of rural Haitian life in a style known locally as Raw Art. Born in Vialet, Petit-Goave, Haiti, Auguste received only three years of schooling in his native village before losing his mother died in a fire at their home.
He was placed in an orphanage where he learned textile weaving. During a trip to Port-au-Prince as an adult, Georges secured a position as night watchman at the Center dArt and began to paint using materials discarded by the artists at the Center. For ten years he studied with the painter Nehemy Jean, and now paints scenes of Haitian life, the way he "sees it in dream". The rich and intricate patterns of George Auguste's painting belie his background as a tapestry maker as he visually and figuratively weaves elements of daily life into colorful compositions that become spiritual narratives frequently employing a birds eye perspective.The item "Vintage Modern Primitive Haitian Folk Art BIG Painting Georges Auguste VIBRANT" is in sale since Saturday, March 2, 2019.
