Guiteau Lanoue, a native of Port au Prince Haiti, creates beautiful textured, structured, and geometric mixed media handmade paper collages. Guiteau uses cotton linter fibers which he scores, rolls, or folds to complete the dimensional paper sculpture he envisions. He acquired collectors all over the world through exhibitions at International Art Expo in NY City and subsequently through juried art festivals in the United States including his cubist dancers which were purchased and placed in the Marietta Whimsy Museum in Sarasota Florida. He is inspired by the geometric influences of Africa also reflected through works of Picasso and Paul Klee and the memories of the colorful Caribbean. He is a believer in God’s gift of salvation to all. His scripture “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” is a verse of encouragement.
