Eudovic's Art Studio

When one speaks of sculpting in St. Lucia, the name Joseph Eudovic resonates with reverence and an almost cult-like admiration for a man who has forsaken all else and devoted his life to creating mystical sculptures which adorn homes and galleries across St. Lucia, the Caribbean and the world.
His is a calling which manifested itself when Eudovic was just 12 years old. It was at that age he entered his first exhibition and won first prize with his piece called Ali Baba. At the end of his schooling in St. Lucia, Eudovic migrated to Trinidad where he became a protégé of Ricardo Vicenté for ten years. While in Trinidad, he competed at various exhibitions and won several prizes. His next sojourn was to Nigeria where he spent seven months, complements the UN, on what he considers the most profound experience of his life as a sculptor. In Nigeria, Eudovic encountered many extraordinary artists who taught and influenced him a great deal. He studied monumental sculpture and the traditional art of Yoruba. He also studied the artistic symbols of the people and their tradition of sculpturing, which is old and very elaborate.
When it comes to accolades, Joseph Eudovic's list is very long. Among them though are multiple M&C Fine Arts Awards including a Lifetime Achievement Award. Back in 1975, he was named Best Caribbean Wood Sculptor for which he won the Golden Medal Award. Eudovic has exhibited at home and abroad including the neighboring French Isles of Martinique and Guadeloupe, Trinidad, St. Vincent and further afield.
Today, he owns and operates, Eudovic's Art Studio. Perched above the lush banana fields of the Roseau Valley, Eudovic's Art Studio is a working studio with workshop, gallery, souvenir shop, restaurant and guest house. On an average day, visitors can see young sculptors chipping away at local wood to create eye-catching pieces. Master sculptor Joseph Eudovic has imparted his skill to many St. Lucian youngsters within and outside the school system, not least of which is his own son Jalim. In fact, Jalim is making quite a name for himself, having captured a few prestigious awards and exhibited at the Commonwealth Games in Canada. All indications are that the Eudovic dynasty is here to stay.
For more information on Eudovic's Art Studio go to www.eudovicart.com or email info@eudivicart.com. If you're visiting St. Lucia, you can call them at 452-2747 or Fax 459-0124 for a free guided tour of the facility located at Goodlands.
