    Story Behind the Art:
    Carlo Brutus and Eugene Jacques are two of the many artisans in Croix des Bouquets, an area of Port-Au-Prince Haiti known for artisans who make oil drum art. The constant hammering from the sheds in the area leads to beautiful metalwork with each stop offering new designs. Eugene's shed is tucked behind several others and yields unique three-dimensional masks with cogs and bicycle chains for earrings. Each piece is a work of art and signed by Eugene. Carlo has what seems like hundreds of different design of the ubiquitous round steel drum artwork hanging from every inch of wall space in his tiny warehouse. The Diaspora of Haitians has spread the designs and skills of Oil Drum art throughout the Caribbean but the art is truly Haitian. Old oil drums are no longer readily available and are imported into Haiti by container and sold to the artisans. Even though cheaper more readily available steel sheets could be used artisans rely on the used drums for the patina in their art.

  • I like this little guy

    This little fellow looks wonderful on my wall, placed among my art pieces and near a clock rounded by filigree. He just makes me smile, especially because I know he comes from a recycled oil drum--great way for him to "re-enter" the environment!

  • Adorable!

    Such an adorable piece of artwork, understated by with just a touch of shine so that it still stands out without being obnoxious. I bought it to put up at work to cover some unsightly holes in the wall and it makes me smile every time I look at it.
