Antoine Obin was born on March 29, 1929, in Cap-Haitien. Son of Philomé and student of his father, he joined the Centre d'Art in 1946. He continues in the pictorial primitive tradition of his father, painting full-time in Cap-Haitien until he died in 1992. Many Haitian art lovers collect his art. " Influenced by the strictness of his father, Philomé Obin, Obin was nevertheless able to emancipate himself from the representation of detail, " says Gerald Alexis in his book "Peintres Haitiens."
