Acciméus James

Acciméus James was born in 1963 at Petite-Rivére de l'Artibonite. He completed his elementary education with Fréres de l'Instruction Chrétienne at Vérettes, and worked with the famous painter Saincillius Ismael at the Ecole de l'Artibonite. He moved to Port-au-Prince in 1990 and developed his own personal style of still-life painting, which features people dwarfed by enormous fruits and vegetables.
