Pierre-Louis, Prosper

Prosper Pierre-Louis was born in Jacmel . He began painting with Tiga and he is one of the members of the Saint Soleil group from Soisson la Montagne in the mountains of Haiti.

This group began around 1973 as a peasant commune run by a French and a Haitian intellectual who left the country in 1979. Five of the artists stayed together and are still painting in an almost modern style of spirits and loas floating freely across the canvas.

Since their exclusive show in June of 1985 at the Villa Medicis in Rome, this group is now called Cinq Soleils. He participated in several exhibitions at the Museum of Haitian Art, the French Institute and all the major Galleries of Haiti as well as the most important exhibits in europe Grand Palais, Paris and the United States, Brooklyn Museum, NY. He graces the cover of Seldon Rodmans book on Haitian Art: Haiti where Art is Joy.
