Haitian Recycled Metal Wall Art

Recycled metal from oil drums is transformed into magnificent wall sculpture and scenes by the skill of Haitian locals. Equally impressive either indoors or on the patio or deck, this is the beautiful work done by the artisans at Beyond Borders. Orginally brought to light by DeWitt Peters, the patron of Haitian arts, was intrigued in the 1950's by the iron crosses adorning many above-ground tombs. Peters discovered the blacksmith, the soon to be renowned Haitian artist Georges Liautaud, and so began Haitian metal art. The raw material was iron, and, soon, the steel oil drum. The center of this activity of Haitian arts is the village of Croix-des-Bouquets, where the clang clang of metal on metal, the chisels banging out the sculptures is a constant music. The pattern is drawn on the metal and chisels and dies and a large hammer are used to cut and mold the designs. The artist smoothes out the steel’s rough edges, beats out the convex and the concave shapes, and when the highly intricate sculpture is completed and thoroughly satisfactory to the artist, he signs his name boldly with a small chisel. A sealant is used to inhibit rusting, and can easily be reapplied when necessary. A uniquely Haitian form of artwork, it is an art of multiple meanings and the Haitian artists’ imaginations are spectacularly fertile.
