Carlo Valtrain is a self-taught artist who sold his first painting at age 14. Valtrain also worked as a calligrapher for the National Theater of Haiti.  Francois Latour, the theater’s director, “discovered” Valtrain during the artist’s tenure at the institution. Latour recognized Valtrain’s talent and become his most ardent patron and promoter. Carlo has exhibited in Miami, New York, Puerto Rico, and El Salvador.  Valtrain is a widower with seven children. Like many Haitian artists, Valtrain struggles to make a living as an artist and to share his creative vision in a country that has little tourism or economic vitality.   All sale proceeds at 1314 one/Half Gallery go directly to the artist.
