Josue Joseph born April 26, 1947 in Santiago, Cuba of Haitian parents. He came to Haiti in 1957, when his parents returned to settle Jacmel. In 1962, he began painting under the guidance of his uncle, Alexandre Gregoire, an established primitive artist. A rich painter, his meticulous brush gives life to legendary leaves and flowers, that makes certain pictures look like embroidery. His paintings are included in the permanent collections of the Waterloo Museum of Art in Iowa, United States. Illustrations of his painting can be seen in John Allen Franciscus’ book, “Haiti Voodoo Kingdom To Modern Riviera”.
