The painters from Haiti are well known for their naive art.

A few years ago, I bought these paintings in Port-au-Prince for a few dollars, they were lying in a dusty street.

I found the smaller painting in Deschapelles.

During a short stay in Port-au-Prince and its suburbs, I was able to make photographs of these murals in a slum.

Most likely , they are destroyed.

The rebuilding of Haiti will need to include preservation of the culture.
