The D’Aguilar Art Foundation, launched in 2008, is the culmination of Vincent D’Aguilar’s vision for Bahamian art. One of the most comprehensive privately held art collections in The Bahamas, the Foundation is an educational resource for artists, scholars, collectors, students and the general public. Operating out of a multi-functional exhibition, educational and archival space, we strive to involve members of the public in the ideas and discourse of Bahamian artists.

Artwork of the Week: 'Street Vendors' by Wilson Bigaud

Wilson Bigaud's 'Street Vendors'  is one of many paintings by the Haitian artist that The Foundation was able to procure. This painting, as with most of Bigaud's work, depicts everyday life in Haiti - and does so with his characteristic use of bright color. His figure-work is reminiscent of statues: initially, Wilson Bigaud worked with clay before he began his career in painting. 'Street Vendors' is currently a part of the Caribbean section at the Foundation.
