Bertelus Myrbel.


Bertelus Myrbel of Cap Haïtien, like many other artists of the region took his original inspiration from Philomé Obin and his circle. Although some aspects of his work still show this influence, he has developed a unique visionary approach. His scenes of historical events or contemporary festivals political events are pulled out of the earth underfoot, holding the graves of the departed, and the heavens above, humming with military or angelic deliverances.  Too young to have studied with Obin, he nevertheless worked with many of those who had. He also studied painting in Port-au-Prince in a private studio before returning to Cap Haïtien, where he lives today. 

His works are in private collections in the United States, Canada, Haiti and France.
