Simeon Michel

Born in Pilate (Northern Haïti) on August 26, 1953. At the age of 15, Michel started drawing and painting, guided by Mrs. Langlois who later granted him a free scholarship to Commercial Design, by correspondence. After three years of study, he obtained his diploma.

Michel focuses on details. He paints mostly Haitian scenes such as crops, tropical trees, seaports, corn, rice or sugarcane fields. His colors are vivid. By the uniqueness of his compositions, he has often been compared with the great Dutch Artist Johane Vermeer of the 16th Century.

In 1977, Michel participated in the exhibition organized by the French Institute in Haiti. He had a huge success. In the competition organized by the German embassy in Haïti, he had won a third prize. Later on, his works have been exhibited in Holland and Italy.
