Today I had the chance to check out sculptor JeanBatiste’s studio in Venice. He’s got quite the plan for Sunday’s tours through the space but I was able to see a slightly more rough version (complete with JeanBatiste painting as we talked). Above is a shot of 2 sculptures in his newest series, Mask of Venice, which features bronze and salvaged wood. The piece on the far right isn’t all together in this shot but it will be by Sunday.
Jean worked as we talked about life in L.A., art inspired by nature, and his excitement at being a part of the Venice Art Walk & Auctions for the second year in a row. He’s a great guy with a laid-back perspective on life. Be sure to star this spot on your tour list this weekend–it’s a great stop to make!
