In honoring Haitian culture, art and lifestyles, Diaspora Vibe Gallery continues to feature art from the Caribbean by exposing the work of artists who live and work in the region and the Diaspora.

“Paradox is a point in common that Boucard and I have,”says Cross. Cross’ works deals with shadows and the paradox to reality and illusion. Boucard’s work originates from different cultures that have influenced his life and work. “We are excited about this opportunity to present this body of work from Haiti especially during these times of national challenges, it is a joy to feature these two artists from Jacmel, Haiti,” remarks Rosie Gordon-Wallace, founder and diretcor of Diaspora Vibe Gallery.

The exhibition will also feature the work of Haitian-born Asser St Val, who has been an artist-in-residence at Diaspora Vibe Gallery.
