Jason Fleurant Graduated With Hi Honors

 

Jason "Jafleu" FleurantJason “JaFleu” Fleurant is a self-taught Haitian American visual artist, and he is the co-founder of the non-profit Exhibit Treal. JaFleu began creating artwork after the earthquakes that devastated his family’s homeland of Haiti. Constantly¬†creating and pushing himself, he developed styles that were instantly recognizable, and he found himself gaining national and international attention for his work. As of late, along Exhibit Treal co-founder Tracy Guiteau, JaFleu has used the acclaim and attention he has gained to promote and provide opportunities¬†for fellow black emerging artists while giving back to his community.
