Born and raised on the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, Alet received his graduate training at Martinique’s Institut regional d’art visuel. Having acquired a considerable reputation both in France and the Caribbean, he established a studio in New York in the mid-1990s and his work has since been commissioned and exhibited throughout the world.

Alet’s highly recognizable peinture manuscrite forefronts the power and ambiance of handwritten text. Working on a large scale, his murals and canvases are rigorously covered with tightly ranged rows of lettering, often citing significant passages from literature or oration. In its dimension as public speech, his work requires viewers to confront issues of socio-political and cultural import. His efforts, however, are just as significantly a meditation on the deeply human gesture of manual inscription itself.

Amistad: New Work by Thierry Alet, will open on Thurs. April 14. A public reception will be held that evening from 6 – 8PM. Regular gallery hours are Wed. through Fri., 12 – 6PM, and Sat. 10AM – 6PM.
