Phantoms of Eden is an exhibition of a brand-new series of paintings, sculptures, drawings and objects by prolific artist and fashion designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac. An explosion of primary and bold colours with Pop culture at its source, the works centre around the theme of renewal.

De Castelbajac was a good friend of Keith Haring and follows the codes and language of Pop Art in a unique way by reflecting amusingly on the future whilst at the same time staying in touch with the spirit of the 19th century. “I’ve always been fascinated by paintings within paintings, things that are part memory and at the same time set in the present. The history and background of an image that at first glance seems like a single picture is what interests me,” he says.

Showcased in the gallery of the Eden Rock Hotel in St Barths, the artist will be in residence at the resort throughout the exhibition where he will continue with the creation and production of further work. Exclusive pieces from de Castelbajac’s latest collection will be on display at Eden Rock’s Rockshop Boutique until the end of November.
