Reynald Joseph was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti on July 4, 1973. His father is the famous artist, Wilfrid Louis. By the age of thirteen, Joseph was earning money for school and books by selling his art. He left school in 1986 to study art with his father. His father taught him to use only three primary colors, and to mix all the other colors himself. He still works by that principle. At sixteen he participated in a group exhibition in Mexico where the Mexican Vice President purchased one of his paintings.
An ardent student of art, Joseph has mastered the media of oil and acrylic and the tools of palette knife and brush. The artist has emerged as a major star of the new generation of Haitian artists. He has exhibited in his native Haiti, as well as abroad and has been included in major publications on Haitian Art.
