Bidonville by the Sea

This colorful and tranquil painting depicts Bidonville, a seaside area of Port-au-Prince, prior to the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Before the houses in this beautiful region were leveled, it was common to observe local fishermen interspersed with their neighbors, playing dominos on their house stoops. This particular piece was made by Francillon Lameur who himself lost his home in the earthquake.

Artist: Francillon Lameur

Francillon Lameur is 42 years old and has four children. Francillon, like one million other Haitians, lost his home in the 2010 earthquake that shook the small Caribbean island on January 24th. He currently makes a living by selling his paintings on the roadside to the small numbers of tourists who visit the capital of Haiti, Port-au-Prince.
