Back in June on my way to Foo Camp in Sebastopol, I came across one of the eclectic sculptures created by urban folk artist Patrick Amiot (see my previous write-up on Patrick Amiot). I had heard that many of his sculptures could be found on Florence Avenue, the street where he has his home studio with his wife and fellow artist Brigitte Laurent.
Recently Lori and I were visiting the Russian River area and while there we drove down to Sebastopol and went on a little photo safari along Florence Avenue to check out all of Patrick’s wonderful art. Almost every other one of his neighbor’s houses have a unique Patrick Amiot sculpture in their front lawn. It’s really quite an amazing sight, walking through this neighborhood with so much public art.
Here’s my gallery of Patrick Amiot sculpture art on Florence Avenue.
In July KQED did a profile of Patrick Amiot for their show Spark.
