What began as promotional posters for the annual Bucket Regatta on St Barths has emerged as an insatiable design style that both visitors and locals alike are clamoring to have hanging on their walls.
Head designer Claire Huntz founded St. Barths Art Prints after receiving accolades from her Bucket poster and released the first one in her landscape poster collection in July 2021. Her most recent poster debuts this month and is pictured here.
Huntz admits that she creates the posters to celebrate her love of St. Barths.
"We want to illustrate the iconic places where many St. Barths lovers like to come to photograph, to relax, to swim, to chill and to laugh with family or friends," she says.
The collection now features five designs, plus an exclusive commissioned piece for Cheval Blanc. For Huntz, the posters have a story to tell and showcase the heritage of Saint Barthélemy and the delivery of the landscapes, from Grand Fond to Gustavia, from wild plains to idyllic beaches. Beyond just beauty, the posters are also philanthropic, and with each purchase St. Barths Art Prints donates to the Coral Restoration Association, which preserves the environment in St. Barths. Huntz plans to continue creating posters in collaboration with various hospitality partners both locally and abroad. Her work is currently at Space Gallery St Barth where she is part of the artists in residence program.
