Georges Liautaud


Georges Liautaud was an sculptor inspired by Voudou. He was born on January 26 of 1899 at Croix-des-Bouquets and died in  1991.

Like many Haitian artists , it was discovered in 1953 by DeWitt Peters, who had noticed the presence of metallic crosses with a particular style at the city cementery.

Encouraged by DeWitt, Liautaud,  due to his blacksmith background and previous experience, will inaugurate the bosmétal, an art form based on the waste of fuel canisters recovered by submitting it to a special treatment. The subjects of his works are a mixture of voodoo and Christian inspiration.
