Telemaque, Yves (Haitian, b. 1955)



Yves Telemak learned about Vodou sacred art from his father, Andre Telemak, a respected houngan (priest).  Telemak learned the art of drapo Vodou in the atelier of revered Bel-Air flagmaker Joseph Fortine. However, Telemak‚Äôs compositions differ from the older generations of flagmakers and he is known for creating elaborate borders of colorful imagery. Similar to Myrlande Constant and Mireille Delice, Telemak's drapo Vodou are collected as works of art rather than viewed as ritual objects.
