Arno Piroud

Have a seat, please
Posted by Gestalten—08/2010

Recognized recently for giving Parisians a place to sit in unlikely locations, Arno Piroud crafts together urban art works
meant to bring a smile to your face. In fact, the Paris-based
contemporary artist has been applying this spirited sense of humor to
his sculptural work and street installations for more than decade. For
Gestalten.tv's latest podcast, we grabbed Piroud at the book launch of Urban Interventions at London's Andipa Gallery and put him in a hot seat of our own.
