Toussaint Auguste, born in 1925 in Leogane, is said to have been active in the Episcopal Diocese as a lay reader and a teacher before becoming a painter in the late 1940s. Following his execution of the "Flight From Egypt" mural at the Episcopal Cathedral of Sainte Trinite in Port-au-Prince, he moved to the United States, where he presently resides. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Musee d'Art Haitien du College Saint Pierre in Port-au-Prince, and the Milwaukee Museum of Art.
