(7/11/2011)

Balidiscovery.com has learned of the death of the much-loved long-term resident of Bali, Frenchman Jean-Francois Fichot in the first week of July 2011 in Cuba.

Details of the circumstances surrounding Fichot’s death are scant; he reportedly died in a traffic mishap.

A resident of Bali for nearly 40 years, Jean-Francois Fichot was a master jeweler and designer, creating one-of-a-kind masterpieces and exotic objects d’art that now form part of private collections of celebrities around the world.

Jean-Francois cut a striking figure on the local arts scene: he stood nearly two meters tall, had an abundant head of white hair, was bearded and was typically a magnificient walking repository of his striking line of male jewelry.

In his youth Fichot studied interior design at L'Ecole des Beaux Arts in Lyon, France, his hometown. In a recent interview in The Jakarta Post, Fichot said: "I studied interior design, but jewelry was my passion. I started to learn about stones and then I traveled to India and was caught by the people, the jewelry, the energy of the country.”

He contined: "I arrived in Bali in 1978 and I knew immediately that I wanted to stay for the rest of my life. Back in those days, there was little to do except watch ceremonies and chat with the local people." Adding: "My influences are drawn from the ancient world - a fusion of Mesopotamia, India, Egypt and Majapahit. I am very lucky to be working here in Bali because I have a group of very skilled carvers, gold and silversmiths. I design the pieces and they realize the works."

While and art and jewelry were Fichot’s mainstays, his other great passion was his garden in Ubud, calling his garden “his other work of art.”
