As a California sculptor, there are many influences evident in the art of professional French-born artist Pascal Giacomini. Using metal, glass, resin, bronze, and found objects, the experienced sculptor is famous for his skills in multiple media. Some of the art and sculpture that the artist's wife sells at her Haitian art gallery, Galerie Lakaye, has obviously inspired the artist. His sculpture entitled Papa Legba speaks to one of Haiti's primary spiritual personages, the "Master of Crossroads" who opens doorways of opportunity.
Los Angeles, Hollywood, and surrounding areas in southern California also play a large part in what moves the artist, as is evident in his whimsical sculpture Worship I, which highlights the slavery to fashion that is such a driving force in the entertainment industry. The sculptor also shows his classical side with the sculpture Horse of Wisdom, a three-headed metal horse that incorporates the figurative, the abstract, and the surreal.
Originally from France, the sculptor now lives in Hollywood, where his contemporary sculpture is available for sale to public institutions and private art clients at Galerie Lakaye or via the Internet at this Web site. The artist is also available for sculpture commissions, large and small, for indoors or outdoors (gardens, front porches, lawns, and backyards) in metal or in a variety of materials, such as glass, wood, and mixed media, including photography. Pascal has shown his sculpture and photography throughout Southern California, including UCLA Fowler Museum of Cultural History, Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles, and the Museum at California Center for the Arts, Escondido (to visit these venues online, see our Links page).
