Adrien Patout is a self-taught artist currently based out of Paris, France. Patout’s work is beautifully “fleshy” to say the least…which doesn’t surprise me at all since she lists two of my other top favorite painters as being artists that she admires: Jenny Saville (featured in August 2010, EK TOP 100 of 2010) and Terry Rodgers (featured in August 2010, February 2012, EK TOP 100 of 2010).
“My main interest is the human body and how people deal with it (piercing, tattoos, esthetical surgery, haircuts, fashion,…). It’s about life, death, love or sex…and how the body, as a media, feels the gap between our inner feelings and the outside world.”
