ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Current exhibition Carrefour / Crossroads features works by the versatile artist Nicolas Hyacinthe, who offers an introspective and artful lens to people and scenes from the every day in Haiti which he pairs with abstract paintings and digital creations.
In this short video, Hyacinthe offers viewers a glimpse of this exhibition – not accessible physically currently because of the pandemic. Artwork viewable below.
I have a life- long passion for creative expression, artistic integrity, and visual meditation. My art relies on my unique experience as a Haitian immigrant who lived a significant portion of his life in America. My life’s converging of languages, cultures, landscapes, politics, and mediums have afforded me with a vast panorama of sources for inspiration and innovation. I am gifted with the ability and opportunity to produce bold images and compelling narratives that challenge viewers to discover the unexplored and delight in the beauty of our shared experiences. It is my wish that my art adds not only charm into one’s life, but that it creates a dialogue for our potential as a collective human race.
BIOGRAPHYBorn in Port- Au- Prince, Haiti, Nicolas Hyacinthe lives and works in the Boston area as filmmaker, photographer, and painter. Passionate about photography early on, Hyacinthe studied film production and photography at Emerson College. He draws inspiration from various sources and disciplines and creates at the intersection of culture, landscapes, and mediums.
