Maryse Narcisse and the Jalousie slum bordering the city of Petionville
Marise Narcisse is a high ranking member of the Fanmi Lavalas political party in Haiti. She was a candidate for president in the 2016-17 presidential elections.
The colorful artwork you see behind her is the Jalousie slum (in Haiti a slum is called bidonville) overlooking the the city of Petionville, where the rich people live and hang out, on the side of Morne Calvaire.
A project to turn Jalousie into a colorful objet d'art it is today was undertaken back in 2014 by the Martelly-Lamothe administration.
