Art is produced with the intentions of stimulating thoughts and emotions and that is precisely what Barbadian artists try to bring out in every piece they create. The talent in Barbados is like no other. Island inspirations and tropical momentum has allowed many Barbadians to develop their inner artistic talents and craftsmanship. From oil paintings, to pottery and kitchenware, to beaded fine jewelry, you will find the exquisite and unique pieces that are 100% locally made from local resources such as clay, wood, palms, bamboo, leather and shells. To showcase all of what Barbados has to offer, there are many art galleries and art festivals throughout the island.
