Wilson Bigaud (1928-2010)

Has a permanent Collection at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Wilson Bigaud was born in 1928 in Port-au-Prince. At seventeen he walked through the doors of the newly opened Centre d'Art in Port-au-Prince. With in half dozen years Wilson Bigaud would be among the leaders of the developing Haitian art movement. Under the tutelage of Professor Borno, and along with Hector Hyppolite, Philome and Seneque Obin, Prefete Duffaut and Caastera Bazile, Bigaud would begin to turn the world's eye toward his work and his island.
His work took three first prizes in exhibitions organized by the Centre d'Art and the Foyer des Arts Plastiques in those first glory years, and his "Paradis" was awarded the second ribbon in a 1950 international exhibit in Washington, D.C. "Paradis" hangs currently in New York's Museum of Modern Art.
