Haiti

Biography
Frantz Jacques (aka Guyodo), born in 1973, is an artist of the "Gran Street", one of the poorest areas of Port-au-Prince (Haiti). He works in an old wrecking yard with a community of artists, the "Atis Resistanz" who make art from the junk that clutters their industrial neighborhood. Guyodo transforms the leftovers of our compulsive consumerism in works of art : sculptures, drawings, paintings… His practice provides him with a means of rebellion against his environment and the misery in which people live around him, with no hope for a better life. In 2006, commissioned by the International Slavery Museum in Liverpool, he produced together with 3 other artists "Freedom sculpture", a giant piece commemorating 200 years from the abolition of slavery. In 2014, he was selected to produce a large-format sculpture for the "Haiti" exhibition at the Grand Palais in Paris. Besides his sculptures, he also produces drawings on corn flakes boxes and various types of packaging.
