Drawing and painting from an early age, the artist received his training from the Foyer des Arts Plastiques in Haiti before being invited to the U.S. and studying at the University of the Arts at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pa.
Mr. Jean-Pierre's fascination with Haitian history forms the basis of his work, which hangs in galleries and museums in the U.S., Haiti, Canada, Europe, and Africa and has been featured in a range of articles and publications.
The artist had adopted New Orleans as his home, but his home and studio were submerged by Hurricane Katrina. He is looking forward to re-establishing his studio, at least for the time being, in Atlanta, GA.
