Obin created a revolution by himself after starting to paint what he saw around this place in between the two world wars. Haitian art was until then very similar to that of French artist of the Revolution, depicting important people in a very European way, posing in their best clothes, in their office or home, with their staff….
Obin painted country farmers and daily life of normal people in a very simple, naive, way, kin of douanier Rousseau.
