    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.

    Having been a first hand witness to Caribbean impoverishment during years as a live aboard sailor, I certainly hope the lion's share of cost does indeed go to the Haitian artisans who have little but time and industrial waste with which to work. The recycled oil drum wall plaque was beautifully wrought and well finished. While it seems small for the price, when one considers the time invested, it would be regarded a bargain at US wage rates.
