Voodou Art Symbols & Stories by Love Leonce
"I'm Love Leonce founding member of the Timoun Rezistans art group since he was a young 10 year old. Timoun Rezistans Art School teaches art to Haitian children and women. Students learn how to draw and paint using different techniques. We use materials recycled like trash for example tires and wood. We set up the school to help because we believe that art can heal, especially those who are vulnerable. The project are a bit difficult for me, because I do not have the opportunity to do that. so I need support to buy the materials and food to feed the children. We make the workshop every week-end."
Fight for what you believe! Born Love Leonce (October 2, 1995) is an artist of Rezistans Timoun in Haiti. I started making sculptures and assemblages of recycled materials in 2006, (11 years old). His subjects are inspired by nature and Vodou's stories. I have been involved in numerous group exhibitions (2008 Creation Culture Foundation) to make workshops and work with children and also FOKAL, 2010 EMBASSADE DE FRANCE, FRENCH INSTITUTE and the Ghetto Biennial. In 2015, I worked in a project Radio Shak ...
