Overstreet Ducasse

Overstreet Ducasse


Born in Haiti, Overstreet Ducasse came to the United States at the age of six. Faced with the challenges of an unfamiliar environment, a new language, and a different culture, Ducasse turned to art as a means of expression and communication. He deems art the universal language and a way to release frustrations and aggravations.

The art of Ducasse goes beyond the visual. His work is captivating, direct and abundant with metaphors and meaning. As an artist, Ducasse refuses to be locked down by one particular style. “The number one rule in art is that there are no rules.” He creates on a variety of mediums from traditional canvas to wood frame doors.
