Artist of the week: Makenol Profil

Makenol Profil

“I am an artist, born and raised in Haiti since 1979. I learned the art of painting from my uncle, Jonas Profil, 15 years ago. Since then I have been an autodidact. Years and years of self-teaching have led me to create my own style, my own subjects, and my own stories. My inspiration comes from my heritage and my spirituality, the music I hear, the landscapes I see and the country that I live in. I represent the strong connection between all the elements of nature including humans. My message goes beyond the need to protect Nature; I see the world as I believe it should be, as one; a world where humans have finally understood that Mother Nature can guide us. Nature witnesses and records our actions and beliefs; it conveys messages from the past to the present. My paintings reflect the synergy between trees and human beings; they live together protecting and nurturing each other. My work invites you to enter into a secret art world; a world where you can visualize the peaceful nature of a true harmony. My stories illuminate those who still believe that nature is an artefact.”

Nature protects humans; it has helped man to grow up, defend himself and learn about his environment, living according to the natural seasonal cycles. However, once humankind starts to believe that it could control its own destiny, one has invented the clock. The clock has shortened man’s timeline; it has reduced the timelessness that existed between the cycles. A couple rushing to celebrate the best day in their life. Now the world is racing. Humans are competing against the clock, against themselves, against nature.
