Alix Beaujour - Amazing Paintings
Alix Beaujour is an artist who lives in Dallas, Texas. He was born in Port Au Prince on the island country of Haiti in the Carribean. Alix Beaujour practiced painting at his private studio in Haiti and later moved to Paris, France for a short time. In 1978, he camed to the United States of America and made it his base.
Alix Beaujour uses different mediums like oils and pastels to make his paintings. He usually draws African women and Christian religious themes like Moses, Jesus on the Cross and the Last Supper.
I like Alix Beaujour's paintings because of the bright colours and the expression in the face of the people he has painted. Here is a nice picture of negro girls picking cotton in the fields. Reminds me of that book I'd written about earlier - 'A Painted House' by John Grisham.
I like the blues and reds in this painting called 'Dancers'. The geometrical designs in the background are very attractive. I've never seen any black people doing ballet though....even on television!
