More about the artist:
Andre Blaise is the youngest of the four Blaise brothers, they called him ti-Andre. All were internationally known and he grew up in the atelier behind Galerie and with Serge Moleon, is one of the two who are still alive. The other two were the internationally known St. Louis Blaise who died at age 38 of a rare blood disease (which was not AIDS) and Fabolon Blaise, who passed at age 28 of a mistreated stomach ulcer .
Andre was born in Cap Haitien in January 1961 although he does not know the date, according to the excellent book Artistes en Haiti, by Michele Grandjean.
His mother was a vendor of fruits and vegetables and his father was a mechanic and tax collector in the markets of LeCap. By the time he was 12, Andre was living in Carrefour painting in the company of his famous brothers. In the Blaise atelier it was not uncommon for more than one brother to work on the same painting. After experimenting with various styles, Andre seems to have settled on painting fish. He portrays them with human characteristics , great humor and the technical virtuosity that is characteristic of the Blaise family. He has two children and lives in Port-au-Prince
