Visiting artist Jean-Paul Jacquet has created a whimsical art installation at the Archipley Cultural Center at Eagle Hill School. Created by simply using blue painter’s tape, the art panels however are far from simple! The illustrations are large, engaging, and entirely unique. The art exhibit will be on display at Eagle Hill School until April 1st. We hope you’ll stop by to enjoy this one-pf-a kind public art display.
Jean-Paul Jacquet is an American painter, sculptor, published illustrator, and educator. He lives in Pomfret, Connecticut, with his wife and two young children, where he is Artist in Residence at Pomfret School. His work can best be described as expressive, figurative, culturally and socially driven, and often exemplifies his keen observation skills as he assesses the chaotic world around him as well as the nuances of “the little things in life.” His artwork is also influenced by his travels, as he spent his earliest years in Nigeria, is a citizen of France, and continues to be a globe trotter whenever given the opportunity. In addition to his work at Pomfret School, Jean-Paul spends his summers running and teaching at L’Atelier au Chateau, an art retreat for teens in France.
