Bio

Originally from Monte Carlo and having lived in some of the world’s most inspiring places, Patou has earned international acclaim for her paintings. And now, she is garnering solid recognition for her art furnishings—Joyful and Puzzle.

Showcased at the gallery is Patou’s custom-designed, one-of-a-kind console series, Joyful. Created in Patou’s emotionally charged spirit and style, Joyful is a natural extension of the artist’s three-dimensional, large-scale and heavily tactile abstract-expressionist paintings. Run a finger along the consoles’ curves and feel Patou’s vibrant energy. Pair a Joyful console with a Patou painting, and take in their combined power. Or use the consoles; they are designed with not only aesthetics in mind, but also function.

In addition to the consoles, Patou is proud of her limited-edition art furniture series, Puzzle. Featuring individually numbered, embossed cocktail sets and consoles, Puzzle never fails to spark conversation—and keep people talking. Simply stated, Puzzle is fresh and energetic, fun and playful. The pieces are ideal for any space.

“My original art furnishings and paintings bring happiness and encourage people to dream,” says Patou. “For me, the way to be revolutionary in art is to touch people.”

Viewing life as if she’s looking through a camera that’s out of focus, and finding her muse in everyday objects, moments or surroundings—a blank canvas, a person passing her on the street or a glimpse of the sea—Patou thinks of herself as the adventurer in her little art and design world. Why? Because she always dares to go somewhere she doesn’t know.
