Blogging the Vault with Patrick Segui

You may know Patrick Segui for his scientific shadowbox dioramas, but we have recently uncovered a whole new side to this artist. He uses his new blog to crack open the vault, pulling all kinds of old drawings from his sketchbooks. These drawings are a fun take on cubism, Parisian cafes, jazz, blues and soul music. Also of interested are images from Segui’s studio filled with antiques, curiosities, and aging books. We already know from his first blog, Riveted, that Patrick is infatuated with anything vintage (as if his art didn’t say it all).

Scroll down for a few images from Patrick’s art blog or go straight to the source here.

We love Patrick’s explanation of the self portrait pictured below:

Such a classical theme among artists that over the years, like my forerunners, I’ve indulged in. It’s always been either out of boredom, or lack of imagination at the time. Introspection or cheapest “model” money can buy…you decide. Anyhow I’ve always kept some of the craziest in my sketchbooks. Here’s one i still like. It was at the time a more elaborate sketch for a diorama, a project for a group show called: “portrait of the artist.” I ended up doing one of George Grosz instead, more interesting without a doubt.
