Shanon Barro


Based in Martinique, Shanon BARRO comes from a family of artisan jewelers. Artist and creator, she grew up in the heights of Fort de-France. She spent a very free childhood there where drawing, reading, the river, and video games were mixed. After a preparatory class Hypokâgne in Fort-de-France, she pursued further training with a degree in visual arts, a school of Landscape, a school of cinema; in Aix-en-Provence and then Paris, where she perfected her photography and audiovisual production. Although nostalgia for the Caribbean grew, it embraced artists such as Dubuffet, Pierre Bonnard, masters of shapes and colors, as well as American filmmakers of the 70s. At the same time, she worked as a freelancer to produce a small program for the Guadeloupe Region or other countries, webcasts and photo reports for the Martinique Region. Back in Martinique, she joined the family business Kayali Kreasyon, a costume jewelry artisan, and immersed herself in the world of the Foyale handicrafts and crystals market. The intersection between Art and the working-class milieu of the Market led her to think of herself as an artist of everyday life and wide-open spaces, specializing in murals and the personalization of everyday objects.
