Artist Bio
Philippe Dodard (born 1954) is a Haitian graphic artist and painter. Born in Port-au-Prince, Dodard worked as an advertising illustrator. His works have been exhibited throughout Europe and the Americas.

He received the first prize in drawing at the Petit Séminaire Collège Saint-Martial in 1966. He studied at the PotoMitan Art School with Jean-Claude “Tiga” Garoute, Patrick Vilaire and Frido Casimir. In 1973, he entered the Academy of Fine Arts. Then he worked as a layout artist and founded a studio of audiovisual graphic arts. In 1978, he received a scholarship to the International School in Bordeaux, France, enabling him to specialize in Pedagogic Graphic Design. Two years later he received a scholarship from the Rotary International Foundation and left on tour with the Group Study Exchange of Haiti to give conferences on Haitian culture. His artwork has evolved to include large sculptures, fine ironworks, and fine jewelry design.

His paintings have inspired American fashion designer Donna Karan’s 2012 Spring collection and a joint exhibition with her at Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami in Miami, Florida. He has participated in a number of Biennales and exhibitions in the Caribbean, the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia. Dodard was recently the Guest of Honor at the Festival sur le Niger in Segou, Mali. In 2018, Dodard participated in the Inauguration of the Museum of Black Civilisation of Dakar and was elevated to the Grade of “Chevalier de l’Ordre national du Lion” by His Excellency Mr. Maky Sall, President of Senegal. His collection “African Memory” is part of the permanent collection of the country’s prestigious Museum.
