The French artist, who now lives in Costa Rica, had always found art to be a source of distraction, enjoyment and a way to express beauty, ever since he was a child and doodled on his notebooks instead of paying attention in class. It wasn’t until adulthood that he chose to dedicate himself to art.After five years with the French Merchant Marines for five years, which allowed Hervot to travel around the world, Hervot met the love of his life in Greece: a Costa Rican woman, Magda Urcuyo. Their travels together were just beginning.“I bought a sailboat with Magda, and we decided to go around the world. We never finished the trip, but we spent two years coming from France to here [Costa Rica], with islands and ports in between to rest… We decided to stop the trip because we wanted a family, and on a sailboat it was complicated,” Hervot told The Tico Times.Once they settled down in Costa Rica, Hervot found work at a maritime agency without knowing a word of Spanish. Just one year later, Hervot decided to create his own business and build two hotels, one in Tamarindo, Guanacaste, and the other one in Barrio Amón, San José. Eventually, however, Hervot chose to sell his businesses and pursue a career as an artist.His hallmark: clean composition and bright colors, drawing heavily on pop art. Within Hervot’s pieces, the love he has for Costa Rica and its pura vida lifestyle are expressed by vibrant colors. He uses mixed media including clay, beeswax, pigment and charcoal with lots of texture. His commercial art can be seen in various hotels Costa Rica, and his private collections have been exhibited in many countries in Latin American and the Caribbean, as well as the United States and Europe.On a warm morning at Hervot’s home in Santa Ana, west of San José, The Tico Times sat down with the artist and his dog Milú to speak about his life and work. Excerpts follow. How did you decide to join the French Merchant Marines?It was a child’s dream. When I first started reading, it was always adventure and travel books. I’d imagine myself in my bed as if it were a boat. I never felt as if I were from a specific place. I was born in France, but my personality was about seeing more places, traveling and meeting people.Besides that, I’m from a Celtic part of France: Britannia. The Celts are sailors, so I think I inherited that aspect of traveling. It was also the generation of the hippies: it was very easy to take any bus to go Afghanistan or India or even hitchhike. “Rainy Days and Mondays” by Jacques Hervot explores the use of vibrant colors with lots of textures. Courtesy of Jacques HervotWhat was your first impression of Costa Rica?Lots of doubts, because I didn’t speak Spanish [laughs]. When I got a job at a maritime agency I was given the job of management assistant. The phone rang, someone spoke in Spanish and I didn’t understand anything, so I hung up [laughs]. That person then called the manager and complained; I had many challenges. Sometimes I felt like, what am I doing here? Because there were many job possibilities at the time in France. Now it has changed.At the beginning it was hard because one was used to many things that couldn’t be found here. There wasn’t any Amazon to purchase books, so we had to go to France once a year and return with the bag full of books. It was a fight with Magda because she wanted diapers for the children [laughs]. People did help me a lot because they were always kind. I was never rejected as a foreigner… and the weather and nature. Those three things helped me. “Just the Two of Us” by Jacques Hervot. Courtesy of Jacques HervotHow would you describe your artistic style?Alma Fernández was the person who agreed to do my first exhibition. That gave me confidence. I’m thankful to Alma for being the first one to trust me; then I did exhibitions in other galleries and sold a lot to hotels.As for the paintings [walks through his house to show off his work], I painted this with some of the remains of a palm leaf that I grabbed in Puerto Viejo and Punta Uva… I also worked for a long time with clay. I made this one when the war in Iraq was going on; I decided to use color pencils as if it were ammunition tape, with pencils rather than bullets. This one was carved with a knife [on wood]; those are album covers I downloaded from the internet and painted them red because it represented the red English phone booth. “How Deep is the Ocean” by Jacques Hervot. Courtesy of Jacques HervotWhat inspires your art, and how does pop art influence you?The colors and the materials. I like aesthetics and harmony a lot. I’m very square, so that’s why it’s symmetric.As for pop art, I like it a lot… every time I had a chance in France to see a piece by Jackson Pollock or Andy Warhol, I’d go, or buy books. I like the colors, and the possibility of people creating their own art. “Free as a Bird” by Jacques Hervot. Courtesy of Jacques HervotHas Costa Rican popular culture influenced your work?I believe it’s more universal. Obviously the country’s strong and vibrant colors do influence it. I see that people’s work in Europe is more grey and obscure, and that’s the time they have over there. Here the people are always pura vida. It’s true. That makes life beautiful. You wake up and see all the light.The pura vida culture has taught me to not complicate my life. If something has to happen, it’ll happen, but if it doesn’t, then it won’t happen. I got rid of stress. In Europe stress is very high, and you have terrible self-critical standards that don’t allow you to be free. Here, people allow you to be free, even in how you dress, and I love that about this country. There are no codes. “Femme Free as a Bird” by Jacques Hervot. Courtesy of Jacques HervotOur “Weekend Arts Spotlight” presents Sunday interviews with artists who are from, working in, or inspired by Costa Rica, ranging from writers and actors to dancers and musicians.

first_img6. The Prince of Wales, MoseleyJust last week the managers of this traditional boozer with a twist got to number one in the rankings after coming top in the UK Licensee of the Year awards, beating 49,999 other publicans to the title. A mile from the ground in the village of Moseley, it has a cosy, traditional front bar with a fireplace, a cocktail lounge, and a wine shed (or Shed du Vin) in the garden, as well as a cigar lounge offering a selection of Cuba’s best. From Thursday to Sunday, the garden also plays host to the excellent Chillidogdogs street food van. Local Lashford’s sausages in brioche buns are topped with a selection of sloppy sauces, so make sure to keep your guard if you want to stay clean.7. Old Moseley Arms, MoseleyThis backstreet boozer, known as ‘The Old Mo’ to locals is not far from the Balti Triangle and was rewarded as Birmingham’s Camra pub of the year last year thanks to its excellent ‘pint and curry’ deals. There are always five real ales on hand-pull, and a tandoori oven on the go seven days a week, as well as four large screens to catch up on action, a pool table and a darts board. Smokers are catered for too thanks to a smoking shelter that’s kept toasty warm by a log-burning stove.8. Diwan Balti, MoseleyAnother Moseley stalwart, Diwan Balti is famed as both one of the original three curry houses in Birmingham, but also as the place where David Cameron was bowled over by their spicy cuisine. The PM was taken to the Indian institution by wife Sam Cam as a 46th birthday treat during the 2012 Conservative Party Conference. It’s open only in the evenings though, so make sure you head there after the end of play.Posted by Diwan Balti on Friday, 20 January 20129. Merry Maid Grill and Bar, MoseleyThis Victorian pub that’s been converted to a great pub-cum-Indian restaurant is home to a real culture clash. Owned by a pair of Sikh brothers, one supports Birmingham and the other is an Aston Villa fan – when it comes to cricket though, they put their differences to one side to serve fabulous food to Warwickshire and England fans. They often offer tickets to matches, and there’s a great pool room – but don’t expect to hustle them for cash, the bar’s team are current Birmingham pub league champs.Large Mix Grill, Naans, Salad And SaucesPosted by The Merrymaid Bar and Grill on Thursday, 1 November 201210. Ashiana, MoseleyPersian cuisine meets Afghan at this cosy little Moseley restaurant with wooden floors and banquette seating.

The second largest cricket ground in the country, Edgbaston, home of Warwickshire County cricket club, is also the one England players prefer to play at – the unique atmosphere of the south Birmingham ground is said to act as a 12th man for the team, and the atmosphere generated by fans has been compared to that of much bigger grounds, such as Calcutta’s Eden Gardens, by former England captain Alec Stewart.Its surrounds are just as unique: The University of Birmingham is close by, as are many ethnic areas including the Balti Triangle meaning Indian, Lebanese and Moroccan restaurants happily sit side by side with traditional boozers. Sample these choices at the top of the batting order when you visit and you won’t go wrong.1. Simpsons, EdgbastonFor top-class food in Birmingham, it’s hard to beat Simpsons.

The building is currently undergoing a refurbishment, but the restaurant remains open minus its terrace.After a week of the restaurant being taken over by electricians ~ we are really looking forward to welcoming our customers back.To book for the weekend call reservations on 0121 454 3434.#businessopenasusualPosted by Simpsons Restaurant on Thursday, 4 June 20152.

There’s a cute outside area decorated with lanterns, naturally great coffee and tasty homemade mezé-style dishes that are great for sharing.3. The High Field, EdgbastonClose to Five Ways train station and opposite Simpsons, this new gastropub opened just last September and has been pulling in an increasing number of more discerning punters since. Set in a converted villa as bright as cricket whites, it has a leafy garden, good beers and juicy Sunday lunches. Every Friday night, the garden plays host to a BBQ evening (weather permitting) and there are good breakfasts if you want to tuck in before the captains toss the coin.Our new canopy is up in the terrace area, ready for the sunny days ahead!

Sir Harry’s Chippy, EdgbastonA Sir Viv Richards six hit from the ground, Sir Harry’s is much more than the chippy the name suggests. This cheap and cheerful takeaway also offers pizzas, fried chicken and halal dishes, as well as a vast range of kebabs, pasties and chip shop specials such as pickled eggs. You can even combine the different take-away styles into one with some dishes. Donner kebab pizza anyone?5. Waters on The Square, EdgbastonMichelin-starred Andy Waters returned to Birmingham with this relatively new restaurant that’s already picked up a Diners Choice award from Open Table for 2015. Wednesdays and Sundays are the best days to go thanks to a special ‘five courses for £29.50’ surprise menu that’s as exciting as a Ben Stokes century. Allow yourself a bit of time to get there if you go at the end of play, it’s at the other end of Edgbaston from the ground and post-play traffic can slow the journey down.Don’t forget to have 20% off!
