Meet Francillon Chery from Haiti
A documentary story about Haitian artist and amputee soccer player Francillon Chery aired Saturday, January 15, on KXAS NBC Channel 5 in Dallas, Texas.
The story includes video of Francillon painting, playing amputee soccer and wheelchair racing.
The video was produced by Kevin Stewart, a photojournalist for NBC and the owner of Good Creations Production.Click here to watch the video on NBCDFW.com.
It was Dr. Fred Sorrells, President of International Institute of Sports - IISPORT (iisport.org) who introduced Francillon's Art to me. Immediately after hearing the inspiring story of Francillon Chery, I immediately wanted to help him. I am now adding his beautiful folk art style paintings to my online gallery. Francillon also employees other Haitians affected by the devastating earthquake of 2010. I love his Waiting Lady painting. The face seems to remind me of Frida Kahlo's style.
I will be hosting a table at Traders Village here in San Antonio to sell Francillon's Metal Works.
