Jean Hérard Celeur is one of the founding members of the art collective Atis Rezistans from the Grand-Rue in Port-au-Prince, altogether with André Eugène and Guyodo.

With Atis Rezistans and Mario Benjamin, they realized the Freedom Sculpture in commemoration of the 200th Anniversary of the Abolition of the Transatlantic Slave Trade, in 2006.

In 2011, Jean Hérard Celeur, André Eugène and Racine Polycarpe are invited to create a sculpture on site at the XISM / Etnografiska Museet of Stockholm, Sweden within the framework of the exhibition Vodou : An Art of Life. This travelling exhibition was first presented at the Musée d’Ethnographie of Geneva, Switzerland, where the artists also created an on site sculpture.

The Brown University of Providence, USA, organized a month dedicated to Haiti in 2011 : Reframing Haiti : Art, History & Performativity. The sculptors of Atis Rezistans gave a workshop and exhibited their work on that occasion.

In June 2012, Atis Rezistan receives a sculpture commission for ArtReach, Cultural Olympiad, UK.
