  • Jean-Claude Garoute, dit "Tiga", né le 9 décembre 1935 à Port-au-Prince et mort le 14 décembre 2006 à Miami, est un artiste haïtien (peintre, sculpteur, céramiste et musicien). Fondateur en 1968, avec Patrick Vilaire et Wilfrid Austin Casimir (Frido) de l’atelier du Poto-Mitan à Port-au-Prince, il crée en 1970 avec Maud Robart une initiative visant à renouveler la peinture haïtienne, en lui faisant rencontrer le vaudou. L’expérience donne naissance, en 1973, au mouvement Saint-Soleil : Tiga et Maud Robart installent à Soisson-la-Montagne, sur les hauteurs de Pétionville, un atelier communautaire où vont travailler les habitants des environs. André Malraux visite Soisson-la-Montagne en 1975 : il évoque cette visite et les artistes de Saint-Soleil avec lyrisme dans l’Intemporel.

An abstract painter, he participated in art festivals throughout the world.Tiga and Maud Guerdes Robard founded the Saint-Soleil post-naïve school of Haitian painting. The school was born when they offered farmers in Soisson-La-Montagne, a rural area near Port-au-Prince, drawing and painting materials. Out of the movement came such painters as Levoy Exil, Louisiane Saint Fleurant, St-Jean, and Dieuseul Paul to name a few. The movement drew the eye of French author André Malraux who dedicated a chapter to it in his book L'Intemporel.In the late 80's Tiga also created '''Kaytiga''', a gallery and cultural center where he taught children and adults art through his Rotation Artistique (Artistic Rotation) method. The method consisted of letting pupils roam freely from clay to drums to paint to ink. Kaytiga had various addresses in Pétion-Ville, a suburb of Port-au-Prince, over the years and eventually moved to Delmas, another suburb of Port-au-Prince.In his own paintings, Tiga often used his "Solèy Brile" method, a combination of ink and acid.Tiga died in December 2006 in Florida after suffering from cancer. Haiti's February 2007 carnival was dedicated to him and embraced the theme Solèy Leve (Risen Sun) to evoke the Saint-Soleil movement he co-created.Some of the alumni of Poto-Mitan include Haitian painters Philippe Dodard and Occenad. Brooklyn-based singer Riva Nyri Précil is an alumna of Kaytiga.
