|Saincilus Ismael is considered the father of the Artibonite style of painting. These distinctively colored and detailed images are often painted on a black ground to emphasize their colors. Traditional Artibonite work depicts scenes of country life. However some of Ismael's students, such as Carlo Jn.Baptiste and Michel-Ange Altidort, have gone on to develop distinctive individual styles. These artists have retained a love of detail and sense of color, while exploring themes of fantasy, politics and human relationships in addition to the traditional subject matter.|
