Gestalten.tv has a filmed interview with artist Arno Piroud on its website, in support of the recent Urban Interventions title. Piroud’s art is most at home on city streets, unashamedly amusing passersby…
From his Ephemeral Seats that recondition the trunks of chopped-down trees (some of which have lasted up to two years before being removed), to the heart-shaped filters he applies to traffic lights, Piroud is not afraid of creating amusing art.
Our favourite piece shown in the Gestalten.tv film is the tennis court he painted onto a neighbouring roof (above). He is, he says, attempting to “put fiction in reality” in his pursuit of making “contemporary art about the city”.
More of his work is at starnocity.com.
Piroud’s work features in Urban Interventions, published by Gestalten.
