Art covers the roads of Port-au-Prince.
Not just on the bright and colourful tap-taps, but drawings and paintings, painted wall murals, posters, billboards of course … There’s colour everywhere.
I liked seeing these painted wall murals in the town and market areas …
They have a distinct style – their portrayal of people are all similar, with simple shapes, but distinctly human.
I was wondering if they also bought any paintings for their home, or if these were all just displayed for the tourist. Well, I came upon this man walking with a painting, so maybe they do buy it for themselves too.
They set them up in the morning … and take them down at night … every day …
Yes, life can still be colourful, amid the dust and rubbles.
