Guyodo

Haiti

(Born in 1973 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Lives and works in Haiti.)

Frantz Jacques, known as ‘Guyodo’ is one of the artists of the “Grand Rue”, one of the poorest sectors of Port-au-Prince (Haiti) wherein a former automobile dump, a community of creators, the “Atis Resistanz”, works from all kinds of recycled materials. He transforms the vestiges of our consumption into works of art: sculptures, drawings, and paintings through which he rebels against his environment and the shameful misery in which poor families live without hope of getting out of it.


In 2006, he produced with 3 other artists, at the request of the International Museum of Slavery in Liverpool, “Freedom sculpture” giant work, in commemoration of the 200th Anniversary of the abolition of slavery then, in 2014, he was selected for the creation of a large-scale sculpture as part of the Haiti exhibition at the Grand Palais in Paris. Besides his sculptures, he is known for his particularly nervous style of his drawings, most often made on the backs of boxes of corn-flakes or various packaging. His work has been shown in New York, Miami, London, and Haiti.
