    Artist Profile- Jean Paul St. Charles

    Jean Paul St. Charles was born in 1979 in Croix-des-Bouquets. At the age of 10, he began to learn the craft of “coupe de fer” or cutting iron. Beginning as a laborer, cleaning and pounding the metal flat for the experienced artists to take over, he worked in various ateliers, including that of the Balan brothers, John Sylvestre, Gary Darius, Gabriel Bien-Amie and Serge Jolimeau. By the time he turned 18, he had advanced to design work and by the age of twenty, he opened his own studio. Entrepreneurship is something of which he is very proud, and rightfully so. In a poor country where unemployment runs at a horrifying rate of forty per cent, Jean Paul employs 12 people in his studio, many of whom will get their own start in business through his guidance and teaching. Travelling to show his work is a dream that he pursues with passion. He has not yet travelled abroad, but enjoys participating in exhibitions in and around Port-au-Prince. To share his art with the world is his broad vision, brought closer one hammer-blow, one stroke of sandpaper, and one chisel-cut at a time.
