"Proudly born and raised in Haiti, I am an artist aspiring to represent the economic hardships and complex realities of life. The inspiration for my colorful pieces comes from the circumstances of the world around me, people I meet and places I visit. My expressionistic art focuses on justice. I hope to inspire change, living in harmony and respect for one another. I use color and movement to capture the culture of the society in which I was raised. Mostly self-taught, I believe God gave me my talent, but also I have been mentored by successful Haitian artists. I started painting commercial murals and went on to paint on clothing and jewelry. I custom mix most of my acrylic colors to create the desired depth and vibrant synergy within each piece. In my work I break up objects with refraction lines allowing the dispersion of light. I would categorize my work as modern eclectic with a bit of surrealistic cubism. Primarily I want my work to evoke a feeling, memory or tell a story, which is evident in the uniqueness of my technique." Gregory Frederic
