Kesnel Franklin

Kesnel Franklin was born in Au Cayes, Haiti on June 24, 1945. He began painting at an early age and became fascinated with the voodoo religion. His popularity as a painter expanded after studying at the Academie des Beaux-Arts under Geo Remponeau and Petion Savain. His works were prominently featured in many exhibitions both in Haiti and abroad. His voodoo scenes have given collectors a birds eye view of the voodoo religion. He is listed in Eva Pataki's book, "Art in Kitsch"and John Allen Franciscus’ book, “Haiti Voodoo Kingdom To Modern Riviera”. Kesnel's works are also included in the permanent collections of the Musee d'Art Haitien du College Saint Pierre in Port-au-Prince, and the Waterloo Museum of Art in Iowa. Kesnel died a violent death in Haiti during the mid 70's.

“In this painting, Kesnel Franklin portrays several women dressed in white with red scarves on their heads, chanting and dancing to the beat of the drums. These particular drums are the Assotor drums, one of the most sacred of all Haitian drums. There drawing of the Veve depicted in the lower section of the painting , represents a loa or spirit, a messenger of the gods. The color white, a symbol of purity, dominates the painting. Franklin, who was an exclusive painter for the Red carpet gallery in Haiti, has successfully captured the essence of this Voodoo Ritual.”
