As part of Women’s History Month, we are exploring the intriguing history of POTO MITAN and its roots in The French West Indies.
Born in 1987 in Martinique, May Clémenté is an emerging artist favoring two different mediums alternatively, reflecting either her need for cheerful acrylic colors in an abstract style, or her quiet, more subdued mood for softness and veiled mystery with the delicate palette of the coffee-painting medium.
A self-taught artist, she exhibited in her native island, then in New York during work-related events and one solo exhibition.
She explores the exhilarating freedom of working on large canvasses where shapes and vivid colors emerge from a deep quest for her inner soul.
