Welcome to L'Art de Moi, for any of you who aren't too familiar with French, it means 'The Art of Me.' The name is Gauthier Roche Primo. I'm 25, 6'3" (192cm), gay, and down to earth. I am a Haitian-American artist ♥ and this blog is just a big conglomeration of everything I am interested in: be it fashion, art, music, or appreciation of the human body etc. I am working on a single panel comic for the image box above that is soon to debut, nothing fancy, just a cool project for my tumblr. The comic is called 'Max & Allen,' two really cool best-friends who are the polar opposites of each other. Max is gay and Allen is straight, but they make friendship all but boring.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU TO BE A HAITIAN HYBRID?

TO ALL MY HAITIANS OUT THERE WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A HAITIAN-AMERICAN/CANADIAN/MEXICAN/FRENCH/GERMAN/DUTCH etc. WE HAVE A SENSE OF WHAT IT MEANS TO BE FROM THE ISLAND (Haiti) THROUGH OUR PARENTS AND WHAT NOT, BUT WHAT ABOUT WHAT IT MEANS TO BE HAITIAN IN THE DIASPORA? WHEN YOU’RE BORN ELSEWHERE HOW IS YOUR CULTURE A PART OF YOUR LIFE, IF IT IS AT ALL? PLEASE ANSWER CANDIDLY. YOU CAN MESSAGE IF YOU WANT AS WELL…THANK YOU =D
