Exclusive artwork made from papier-mâché, entirely lacquered by hand.

As birds — or animals, for that matter — go, chickens are pretty intelligent. They can learn to count and they understand the concept of zero. They can be trained to do tricks and to recognize colors. They can figure out how to get out of almost any pen you put them in, sooner or later. Chickens and other birds have been observed planning future actions and anticipating reactions to an action they’re going to take. Chickens also learn by observing and copying other chickens.

Jayav’Art Difference

Creative Art Deco
The recycled materials and handmade process make each item one of a kind, with a story to tell.

Smart Sculptures
Papier mache is light, so suitable for masks and other sculpture intended to be carried, and can take very fine detail. It is also solid as wood!

Sustainable Art
At Jayav Art, we help people with disabilities to fully participate in work-based learning and we recycle old paper into beautiful works of art.

Our Story

Jayav Art is a social enterprise which transforms recycled paper into environmentally friendly sculptures while creating decent jobs for vulnerable people. The adventure began in 2010 when Philippe Brousseau, a French artist of great renown was touched by a Cambodia ravaged by 30 years of war. Then, he met his Cambodian counterpart Tara, who was also passionate about papier-mâché art and who had the same desire to promote this local art that was still unknown internationally. Philippe and Tara wanted to create their eco-friendly artwork with conscience. It’s why they focus on an environmentally friendly approach, realizing that every step they take affects the planet and the people on it. Read more

How do we make sustainable art work from papier-mâché?

Firstly, all of our sculptures are entirely handmade with recycled paper and vegetable fibers. Then, they are decorated with natural pigments and acrylic colors. Finally, our environmentally friendly manufacturing process makes it possible to recycle old newspapers. As a result, our papier-mâché artworks are lightweight while appearing as heavy as any other sculpture. This means they are easy to ship. Read more
