Louis Juste Omiscar began working in metal sculpture at eight years old, flattening and sanding used oil barrels. He began cutting metal when he was fourteen, and apprenticed with the renowned artist Serge Jolimeau, whose metal art has been collected by museums internationally. From Jolimeau, Omiscar learned to do fine cutting and detailing and create his own designs. Now, he has a wife and two children, and works with eight apprentice artists of his own in his workshop in the Village Artistique de Noailles, a three-street enclave of metal artists in Croix des Bouquets, Haiti. He specializes in intricate floral patterns,. “When my art goes out, it lives in the world for me," he says.
