Artist from Haiti ( May 1925 - Feb 2000 )
Pierre Joseph Valcin (sometimes listed as Pierre Joseph), born in May 1925 in Port-au-Prince, is said to have worked as a mechanic, a stone mason (for 25 years) and as a plumber before joining the Centre d'Art in the early 1960s at the recommendation of his half-brother Gerard Valcin, who tutored Pierre for his first year as a resident artist at the Centre. He is the father of painters Favrance Valcin and 'Valcin II.'
His work is included in the permanent collections of the Musee d'Art Haitien du College Saint Pierre in Port-au-Prince, the Davenport Museum of Art in Iowa, the Waterloo Museum of Art in Iowa, and the New Orleans Museum of Art.
Pierre Joseph Valcin died in February 2000.
