muller jean francois
Acrylic Painting, Abstract Mixed Media
Muller was born on May 25, 1964 in Cap haitian on the island of Haiti. His interest in the arts has been life-long, beginning with the appreciation of many artists, both famous and lesser known, including several friends who were also artists. Among the famous haitian artists he admired was Philome aubin, Roland etienne and Ernst prophete. From this inspiration and working mainly on natural landscapes he decided to pursue a career in the arts. working constantly with a great passion led him to fine tune and develop his own style. In 1985 he made his professional debut by taking part in a competition at the gallery "des trois visages" (the three faces) located in Cap haitian. Later that year he became member of "Ajapka" an association of young artists in cap haitian. in 1992 he immigrated to the united states, settling in newark new jersey. He instantly began to work in acrylic and oil preferring a primitive approach. in 1995, he was featured in an art exhibition in east orange, New jersey. In 2006 he participated in a competition sponsored by Agora gallery in new york city called "competition international". During all this time he was always painting, trying to perfect his style of art. As a native painter, Muller prefers panoramic countryside and landscapes. He approaches his art through "positivity". Since coming to New jersey, he has become a serious art collector trying to expand his style to include architectural paintings. Muller also extends his work to include reproduction work of classical paintings, mostly from an intuitive sense that he could do it well. His favorite colors to work with are: green, red, yellow, blue, and black. these colors dominate most of his art work.
