Welcome to Primitive Artist Alvin Batiste's Website and Virtual Gallery
the website of African American primitive artist Alvin
Batiste -unequivocally the most sought after and collected country
artist since the likes of Clementine Hunter. Alvin Batiste
lives and works in the heart of a Donaldsonville, Louisiana.
It is here almost each day, that a virtual unknown (only a decade ago)
has become the burgeoning celebrity of his time.
But it does not take an appeal to an authority to be sucked into the vacuum of primitive artiste Alvin Batiste's world. Spend only a few minutes watching him through FramerDave's Frame Shop window as he paints his original works, or look into the calm and peace of his face and you will instantly feel compelled to examine the wisdom from behind his eyes, that flows effortlessly from his hands to the canvas.
Recognizing that his peace comes from up above, Alvin Batiste has infectiously managed to capture the hearts and imaginations of people from every demographic. He is a visionary, a story teller and an artist's artist.
