Born in Haiti, Grégory Vorbe, is a graphic designer by training and has been painting since he was young. While appreciating contemporary Haitian artists, Vorbe, captivated by traditional Haitian naive and mystical paintings, tried to grasp and transpose the concepts drawn from a very little explored world. His excursions into various parts of Haiti allowed him to enrich his painting as well as his music, two complementary fields in his artistic universe. He explores voodoo and aboriginal rhythms, collects drums, percussion and instruments from different cultures and, little by little, transforms his painting space into a music studio where primitive and modern instruments, masks and found objects coexist everywhere. Vorbe, thanks to the fertility of his artistic imagination, facilitates the integration of different cultural traditions in his pictorial and musical works. This artist also symbolically expresses nature in abstract forms, and some of his paintings argue in favor of protecting the tree. Vorbe paints in acrylic and, occasionally, uses sand, leather, wood, paper, fabric. In the early nineties, he was awarded in Miami, during his first international collective exhibition. Gregory Vorbe continues his quest as an explorer, is inspired by resonance and paints music, trees, water, mysteries and the earth.
