Eric Girault, coined “the virabtion of life”, is a Haitian artist currently located in New York. He discovered his love of painting at a young age while participating in an art competition in high school. Soon after, he began studying and working with many other renowned artists including Lagar, Cedor, Ti Ga, the Maurice Brothers, and Jean Renee Jerome. Throughout the years, his work has been exhibited in numerous venues throughout America and France, such as the Rockefeller center and the Brooklyn Museum. Though Girault enjoys living in New York City, his heart is still in Haiti. He is concerned and passionate about the preservation and education of Haitian architecture, particularly the endangered Gingerbread style houses. He has reproduced these delicate homes on large canvases to help raise awareness.
