Haiti's own Banksy!
His graffiti can be found all over Petionville and downtown Port-au-Prince. It carries both a satirical humor and political message. Much of it is repeated in different parts of the city, and a few imitations can be seen, but we know its a Jerry, when we see his signature, not the 'r's' are without the back, so one would think it says Jezzy but from our good Haitian source, his name is Jerry.

Throughout the street corners, road bends and sometimes tucked away behind gated walls lie a very beautiful and creative side to Haiti. Paintings are strewn on the sidewalk, (well Haitian sidewalks, meaning sandy muddy pathways) clay pots hanging off trees and furniture being made and sold on the sides of busy roads.
Art can be seen everywhere, from painted advertisements on the walls, to straw chairs, to brightly coloured buildings to political graffiti. It is really part of the city and I think it is amazing!
