    Biography

    Frantz Mosanto was born in November of 1962 in Jacmel.
    He came to Port-au-Prince when he was twelve and started drawing and sculpting.
    At 18, he started to paint on canvas. Mosanto was very affected by the devastation
    of the landscape of his country. He dreamed of a new Haiti
    where people would stop cutting the trees and start planting them.
    His paintings of very green mountains with very high trees and clear running
    rivers are his dreams for the revitalized Haiti.
    He has participated in many exhibitions in Haiti, France, United States, and Japan
