Art on our island

YOU WIL FIND OUR SOUL IN EVERY PIECE OF ART


If you love local art or if you just love to see what beautiful things we make, come to our quaint and fun shops in Bonaire. You will find beautiful objects that clearly convey who we are. Driftwood washed upon our beaches with the trade winds is our great inspiration. The bright and striking colors perfectly match our warm and happy feelings.

Brightly colored signs

If you come to our island, you will undoubtedly see the many colored signs that point the way or give directions. They are local artwork of driftwood that give us a cheerful island by the bright colors and fun patterns. Even when we put temporary walls around a construction site, we turn them into a joyful work with beautiful paintings of our island, which brighten our streets very much!

Local art of driftwood

We often make other great works of art of driftwood washed up on our beaches. They can be admired in our nice and quaint shops in Bonaire. Come and take a look at our local artwork, such as sea horses, iguanas, clocks and sharks and feel free to buy one. You will definitely enjoy it! Would you like to see one of the female artists on our island? Come and have a look in the studio of Germaine Nijdam. She makes beautiful objects and paintings of driftwood.

Paintings

Do you want to enjoy other forms of art? Then come see the beautiful paintings of Henk Roozendaal in Wanapa country. You can find Henk’s paintings everywhere on our island, on the walls of our homes or on the walls of our supermarkets. They are portraits of happy people in bright colors and show you exactly how we feel. They always make us very happy.
