Unexpected Street Art in Noailes, Haiti

Great art is so ubiquitous all over Haiti, especially in Port-au-Prince, that sometimes it's easy to miss. Such was the case for me on my last visit to Noailles, the famed artisan village renowned for its prodigious production of upcycled metal art made from old oil drums. Noailles is so famous for its metal art, in fact, that I never noticed colorful wall murals like this one during previous visit. The works adorn the walls of many of the artisan workshops here, adding a bit of branding panache that works to differentiate one shop from the next. It was a server at the La Sirene Restaurant within the Marriott Port-au-Prince that tipped me off to the street art. I mentioned that I was heading over Noailles to buy a few more metal art angel sculptures to add to a collection started several years before. The tip added a whole new dimension to my usual Noailles wandering, my focus this time split between shopping and admiring/photographing the street art.
