Jimmy Lafaurie: Another Globe-trotter at heart, to believe that all artists are a little, a lot crazy, passionately,… Jimmy makes jewelry, trailers and Tiny House. You know, micro-homes. We have to admit, the Tiny House in Saint-Barth is out of scope.
Jimmy has lived in Saint-Barth for five years and regularly participates in the Art Parties of the Association des Artistes de Saint Barth. It is under the impulse of the association that Jimmy created some pieces especially for the Art Parties. Large format works made from recycled materials and stones from the island.
On the island, there is no lack of recycled materials, especially since the passage of Irma, nor even stones because as some like to say, stones grow in Saint-Barth…
Overall Jimmy, creating without really knowing where he was heading, when he started a creation, the inspiration comes to him in relation to the noises, wind and waves that form a song in his creative universe and so he discovers the elements that surround him, he assembles them over time and discovers his creation and each time for him, it is a surprise.
When I told you that artists are all a little strange, that’s a good example. We like the picture that illustrates his portrait quite well. We also love his creations and we share them with you.
