Name: Patrick Segui Location: San Francisco Size: ~700 sq. ft. Years lived in: Rented for 6 years >>Enter Slideshow After seeing Patrick's apartment it won't come as a big surprise to find out he's an artist, even if you didn't initially realize that many of the pieces adorning the walls are his own creation. And after viewing his work, we don't think you'll fault us for thinking the apartment might just be his largest piece of art, as the two are obviously informed by each other. >>Enter Slideshow While the space isn't large, it manages to be full of some of the more interesting objects we've seen in a residence while not feeling crowded. The artist, who is originally from France, has carefully curated and arranged everything, from the bottles of "potions," African dolls, Mexican Day of the Dead objects to the vintage medical accoutrements. The apartment includes some of the most gorgeous orange chairs we've ever seen, and an impressive vinyl collection. In the context, Patrick's richly layered shadowbox paintings almost feel as if they've sprung from the walls fully formed. If you're interested in more information about Patrick's work you can contact him at psegui (at) att (dot) net.
