Bien-Aime, Gabriel (Haitian, b. 1951)



Born 1951 in the village of Croix des Bouquets, now known as the “cradle of 20th century Haitian metal sculpture”. Croix des Bouquets nurtured such great Haitian sculptors as the late Georges Liautaud and Murat Brierre, the brothers Louisjuste, and Serge Jolimeau. Bien-Aimé worked as an auto mechanic for several years before apprenticing to sculptor Janvier Louis-Juste. Working on his own, he has become one of Haiti’s two leading sculptors.
