Eugène Ledoine

Born in 1969, Haitian artist Eugène Ledoine began sculpting in 1990. With no formal training, he learned the art of wood carving from his brother and uncle. He uses local woods from the island and around the Caribbean to depict fluid, 3-D images of the human form in motion, often using a single piece of wood.  He is especially known for his male dancers, whose elegance and abandonment leave you feeling as though you’ve seen something from the “secret life of men.” He’s also known as a painter, poet and art historian in Haiti.
