Wilson Delianne, whose work is displayed on the floor is Zephirin's bother, the concierge of Pen Haiti. We've met numerous times, usually when he comes to visit we engage in small talk but I never knew he also paints. He started doing sketches at an early age and sold his first painting when he was 19 years old. On his last visit about a week ago, Wilson brought with him several of his work which I happen to like, to make a small presentation for Flo Jallier, (woman on the right w/purple dress) a writer who lives in Paris and stayed at the Pen Haiti residence for 2 weeks. Before she left on her trip to Haiti, her brother asked her to bring back some Haitian Art. She chose the painting of the vases on the right.
