An impromptu visit to my studio this month and I was delighted. "Sunset over St Pete" and "Sunrise by the Bay" found a new house. Seeing others happiness brings me so much JOY.
"Happy and proud to own my very own Flory art painting. Thank you for my beautiful painting. Feeling blessed."
Magnum Band formed on June 24, 1976, by Andre Pasquet(a.k.a. Dadou), former musician of the group Tabou Combo, and his brother Claude parquet (a.k.a. Tico) in Miami.
In the late 70s, the group became known in various clubs of Queens and Brooklyn thanks to the substantial Haitian community there. In 1980 they made their first international tour. In 1996, they performed at the 1996 Summer Olympics opening ceremony in Atlanta. Throughout their tours in Guadeloupe, France, Canada, and the United States, the Magnum Band participated in the promotion of Haitian Compas and strengthened its footprint. The group celebrated its forty-fourth anniversary in June 2020.
Painting offered to Dadou Pasquet as a token of my appreciation for 44 years of great music.
The Luxembourg Art Prize aims to reveal and promote talented artists who have yet to establish a profile on the contemporary international scene.
