Vin Koze - Hemler Mauricette

“Strength, Passion, Integrity, and Motivation” 

An internationally acclaimed, self-taught artist Hemler Mauricette’s affinity for art began in his teenage years. His earliest illustrations were produced at the age of nine, and at sixteen, he embarked on a successful professional career. Nature, life’s experiences, and the daily struggles of people have facilitated his art education. 

After experiencing the 2010 Haiti catastrophic earthquake, Hemler Mauricette’s determination emerged through art. Using surrealism and expressionism, Hemler demonstrates the realities of life in his beloved birthplace of Haiti, along with his current home in the U.S. 

In 2018, Hemler’s work was recognized by the City of Orlando. His work was displayed at one of the nation’s largest airports, the Orlando International Airport in Florida. Hemler’s artworks have been showcased worldwide at art fairs and venues in Mexico, Chile, France, Spain, Haiti, and the United States.

Hemler Mauricette’s mission is to inspire and influence young artists by teaching them values through art and the power of positive expressional art. 

Hemler Mauricette’s dedication to his craft can be summed up in his artist’s statement, “Through myself I find art, and through art, I find myself more, which gives me a deeper perspective about the person I am today and am becoming.”
