Growing up in Haiti, digital artist Day Brièrre was exposed to powerful visual languages; whether the striking symbolism from folklore intrinsic to the culture or the iconography of Catholicism, the Haitian surrealist painters like Hector Hyppolite, or the stylings of Ghanaian barber shop signage.She blends and borrows from all of this in her mystical, wickedly playful and color-saturated scenes. She told us that anytime people start to recognize her for a certain style of work, she changes track; she’s determined not to be put in a box.
