As one of Haiti's most renowned artists, Jean-Claude Garoute promotes art as the means to heal the troubled nation as it enters its third century."Creation is important if you want a strong Haiti," the artist, known as "TIGA," said in a makeshift studio in his daughter's Lauderhill garage.Another, titled The Big Lady, features an obese woman who Garoute says represents the fusion of the African, European and American Indian cultures that gave birth to the Haitian people.To commemorate Haiti's bicentennial, his work will be on exhibit at the Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale starting Saturday, a collaboration between the ACTION Foundation, the museum, Broward County and the city of Fort Lauderdale.Garoute says art is the path to a better future for Haiti.A native of Port-au-Prince, he began his career as a child.He developed as a polyvalent artist, working in various media and developing teaching techniques.In 1956, he became director of the Center of Ceramics under the Ministry of National Education.He was 21 years old.In 1968, Garoute founded the Poto-mitan Art Center, the cradle for many of Haiti's most renowned artists.There, he developed a movement called Saint Soleil, or "Holy Sun", which puts people in touch with their innate creative ability.Garoute brought his technique to peasants in the mountains of Soisson La Montagne, about 25 miles southeast of Port-au-Prince."They had a new consciousness, an experience of being reborn," he said.
