Artist: Fritz Des Roches
* 1956 in Port-au-Prince/Haiti
I am an airbrush-artist. I taught myself in airbrush-techniques since 1989. My technique is a mixed of the brush and the airbrush. The paintings depict a scenery of the lifestyle and the daily activities of the people in the Caribbean and in Africa.
Exhibitions: among other things Nürnberg, Erlangen and Paris.
On the front side of the Bear, one can feel and hear the beating of a drum, the playing of a "bamboo blower" and the rattling of an instrument (cha cha). These three musicians are playing, singing and dancing to the beat of a typical Haitian folk music.
The back side of the bear shows a merchant sitting and waiting in vain to sell her goods.
