“Art for Survival”
We are a network of artists and entrepreneurs, engaged in the marketing and
promotion of art to alleviate the tough conditions and economic hardship that often
characterize the life of artists in the fourth-world. We aim to create a hub where the
public is exposed to great works of art and the artists to steady income and decent
In the fourth-world, art creation is not just a vocation or a leisure to produce. Time
and again, artists are born out of necessity. Misery and poverty engender inspiration
and fuel the passion for creation. It is not art for art, it is art for survival. Humanity
resorts to a variety of behaviors to cope with great adversities. In our realm, the
innate instinct of survival becomes the impetus for creativity and ingenuity.
We propose to advocate for this art, expression of the daily joy and affliction of a
volatile nation. We are self-taught for the most part. Yet our finish products and
creations make the pride and honor of Haitian art and culture around the world.
