Biography Jonas Profil
Jonas Profil (1957-)
Born in Fort Liberte, near Cap Haitien on July 22, 1957, at age 18, Jonas took the money given to him for school and bought art supplies. Since that day he has been a painter. Although he now lives and paints in Port-au-Prince, he considers himself a Capois and signs his work "Cap Haitien".
His paintings are observations on Haitian life rendered in pale and pastel colors that are unique for Haiti. A follower of voodooism, many of his paintings show an element of the fantastic.
He is featured in Michelle Granjean's book, Artistes in Haiti.
