Edouard Duval Carrié is a contemporary Haitian artist who was born in 1954, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti; and currently lives and works in Miami, Florida. He was educated at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts, in Paris, France; and at the University of Loyola Montreal, in Quebec, Canada. Duval Carrié portrays a “Marvelous Reality”, as Cuban writer Alejo Carpentier defined it in the prologue for his book The Kingdom of this World, a story about Haiti that has been a strong influence on the artist. He brings into his work the nearly fantastic world of his country, in images that could be seen as illustrations of myths and legends.
