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 shop 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 with 'Eugene'. Carlo has what seems like hundreds of different designs 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.

  • Very cute but quite small

    Very cute and well made. Just be sure to note that it is quite small. It doesn't have enough impact for a large space. It does have a hanger on the back, unlike the little bird/tree plaques, so it's easy to hang.

  • Steel Drum 8-inch Sun Face Wall Art

    These same items are sold on eBay except they are marked up by 10 or 15 dollars. Therefore, those sold by Overstock are a better deal. That out of the way, I really like these because they are so unique.
