About the Artist
Born in Jacmel in 1920, Alberoi Bazile began his career working in Port-au-Prince as a military member of the Criminal Research section of the police force. At the urging of his younger brother, the artist Castera Bazile, Alberoi took up painting in 1951 under DeWitt Peters at the Centre d'Art.
Like his cousin Wilmino Domond, another artist, he painted on the side until 1963, when he resigned from the police force to devote all his time to art.
Bazile's work is characterized by an extraordinary use of bold colors.
