Description

Emilcar Similien, known as Simil, was born in 1944 in St. Marc, Haiti. From 1965 to 1971 he studied painting, sculpture, and art history at the Academy of Beaux-Arts in Port-au-Prince.

Simil uses his images of women only as means for displaying patterns, color, and the sparkle of gold jewelry on black skin. He paints with acrylics on Masonite of any size. His surfaces are smooth and polished. Simil delights in beauty, elegance, and grace.

“Well trained by masters who taught him to excel in his form, Similien’s works also contains discrete messages” (Peintres Haitiens by Gerald Alexis).

He has been exhibiting since 1969 namely in Haiti, USA, Denmark. Simil is considered as a leading contemporary Haitian artist.
