A New Art Collaboration at Le Guanahani St. Barth

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - December 1, 2016

There’s something new to see at St. Barth’s Le Guanahani, thanks to a collaboration between a pair of top artists.

Inspired by the St. Barth’s resort’s ongoing 30th anniversary year, artists JonOne and Richard Orlinski have unveiled two striking works of art at the beachfront property.

An American graffiti artist who has lived and worked in Paris since 1987, JonOne created a unique work of art for the event– “an explosion of vitality and color offering a Dionysian celebration of lines enmeshed within a maze of visual and touch-sensitive explosions.”

JonOne describes himself as an “abstract expressionist graffiti painter.”

Since 2011, he has worked with the foundation Abbé Pierre in the fight against poverty, and in 2016 he earned France’s highest honor as a Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur.

Sculptor Richard Orlinski, “a believer that beauty can invert violence into positive feelings,” has tapped his “Born Wild” concept to create a work of art in the signature colors of Le Guanahani, with two alligators fighting for the “G.”

Orlinski’s works are found in collections around the world, and ArtPrice has ranked him as one of the top ten most sold French artists worldwide since 2011.
