What is Haitian Superflat?

Haitian Superflat is basically the perspective of a Haitian born Artist / Painter looking at similar themes from the SUPERFLAT movement in Japan started by Takashi Murakami.  So from the viewpoint of an OUTSIDER looking in and taking elements from his own background of Haiti into what he is discovering...  A Haitian painter studying and exploring Japanese culture as a whole and mixing elements of Haitian Culture into an already interesting mixture of MANGA / ANIME - OTAKU Sub-Cultures, technology, sexuality, modern consumer culture and how all these things impact a person's mind and life.  Simply Haitian Superflat is a personal journey of one artist on a quest to blend imagery from both Haiti + Japan on canvas seeking to understand more about life, identity, and similarities of the human heart without borders.

Though inspired by SUPERFLAT some of the differences in Haitian Superflat are not having the benefit of a super cool Hiropon Factory or Andy Warhol like production line to create a massive amount of work.  This will only be a personal exploration, for now just a desire to introduce Haiti into Pop-Art.  Another difference in ハイチのスーパーフラット the paintings may deal with broader themes of Life in Haiti not only cute imagery but under the surface this series will aim to show an underling theme of the apathetic nature that is found through life and consumerism in general. The HAVES vs. the HAVE-NOTS... Childlike Wants + Desires... Fantasy vs. REALITY...

(breaking it down to the basics)

Haitian Superflat is expressed by artist Hertz Nazaire in the following ways

  1. Paintings (production of a large body of work reflecting the subject of Haiti + Japan ハイチのスーパーフラット)
  2. Cosplay (コスプレ) "costume play" is a type of performance art that has been spread out from otaku culture this will focus on the aspect of lost identity, fantasy vs reality. Conceptual Cosplay as (ミスターノーバディ)*
  3. Conceptual + Installation + Street Art = Love Love Healing Eggs** for planned installations as support pieces to the series of paintings. And to simply share them as street art and good luck + wellness charms.
  4. Culture and Language - Kanji will be used whenever possible because exploring to understand meanings of things is part of the Haitian Superflat concept. The artist does not speak or read Japanese but technology allows for cultures to communicate and exchange ideas easier today.  The goal of this language use is to encourage and promote curiosity, a desire to learn and understand something you do not already know... with the hopes that this will lead to continued peace and friendship between cultures.
