Haitian Heritage Museum Presents Solo Exhibition "Flesh and Water" with Artist Markenzy Julius Cesar

During Art Basel, Art Week -The Haitian Heritage Museum presents a Solo Exhibition entitled “Flesh and Water” by Artist Markenzy Julius Cesar. In an era where “Black Beaches” are long gone or on the cusp of extinction to facilitate driving waves in the real estate market, Artist Markenzy Julius Cesar explores our interconnectedness with water as individuals and as communities through his work. His artistic expression emerges through oil on canvas and embodies his passion for water and how vital it is to our human existence.

About Artist Julius Cesar

Markenzy Julius Cesar grew up in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. His love of drawing began as a kid, drawing the superheroes on his lunch boxes. On his 13th birthday, not long after the Duvalier regime was ousted, his family emigrated to the States. He quickly assimilated to the new world that he saw as the promised land. When it was time to go to college, he majored in art, receiving a B.F.A. with a concentration in Painting and Drawing from Buffalo State College. After graduating he remained in Buffalo, NY with his wife and two daughters where, as a man of faith, his life and art have been inspired. Over the past few years, his artwork has been influenced by what he remembered from his childhood. He would tell you it took him becoming a diaspora to really appreciate the rich Haitian culture he took for granted … When you are from an island, surrounded by water on all sides, you grow to have an affinity for it.

About Haitian Heritage Museum

Founded in 2004 to commemorate Haiti’s Bicentennial, the Haitian Heritage Museum (HHM) is a 501c3 organization that is committed to highlighting and preserving Haiti’s rich culture and heritage globally.
