Le Primitif Galleries was born out of a passion for Haitian artwork after living in Haiti in the early 1970s. In 1976 I began importing these beautiful, hand-crafted pieces of artwork for Homes & Gardens. Each of our pieces are hand-chiseled from recycled, steel oil drum by Haitian artisans. I am excited to have been an exhibitor at MANTS since 1999 to help highlight these pieces to more of the world. Apart from giving the viewer endless enjoyment and keeping more trash out of the world's landfills, these upcycled pieces of art give considerable employment to the artisans of Haiti.
