Arnold Toulon


Born in Roseau in 1962, Arnold’s interest in art was evident from his childhood. His father Francis Toulon was an artist and craftsman who was very supportive of his endeavours. As a child Toulon preferred the countryside to the city, and would spend his summers at New Florida Estate, where he would spend hours watching his cousin artist Carl Winston, at work on his large surrealistic paintings. This experience and the fact that his parent’s encouraged his creativity lead Toulon to decide on a career in art from the early age of seven.

His first works were based on his dreams and visions and were executed in a surrealist style influenced by his elder brother Paul, and Carl Winston. During his school days much of time was spent drawing. It was at this time he began to study art history, reading any books he could get his hands on. His favourite were books on impressionist and modern abstract art. Toulon graduated from the Jamaica School of Art in 1986 and migrated to St. Lucia in 1993 where he continues to do his art work.
