Coco Swims the Channel Swimmer Statue
French artist Frederic Levesque adds wit and whimsy to any garden
Expected back in stock: November 17
Your neighbors will do a double take when they view whimsical Coco "swimming" through your flowerbed! True garden art, she's prim and proper from her arched hands and bathing-capped-head to her pudgy bum and manicured toes. Artist Levesque found great delight in taking what he saw in "real life" and giving it the kitschy brightly-colored, humorous spin that became "Coco." This exclusive arrives in four cast resin pieces.
About The Artist
Frederic Levesque (1960-2010)
French artist Frederic Levesque possesses an undeniable talent for imaginative sculpture. Full of humor and attention to detail the realism associated with his works reflects his love of nature in a way that magnifies the true value of his art. A great respect and fascination for the animal world is found in much of what he has accomplished as a sculptor.
From 1980 to 1983 Frederic Levesque attended L Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris which gave him the ability to better develop his creative talents. Feeling that he had successfully mastered his drawing skills he went on to translate this expertise into a variety of logos posters and myriad advertising materials during the years immediately following his classical art training.
Frederic Levesque greatly respects and is fascinated with the animal kingdom and presents this in many of his whimsical works such as his Coco Swims the Channel sculpture.
Today his specialties tend to lie in the realm of the chimera be they gargoyles monsters or a hybrid of sorts. Take a little bit of toad slime some salamander powder an ounce of plaster--and you have one of Frederic Levesque's gargoyles. His monsters half devil or half beast characterize the most complex of dreams with their incredible detail and the patience required to create such incredible three-dimensional images. What Levesque manages to achieve through his painstaking efforts are works of art that eternally retain the ability to arouse our imaginations and remind us of our legends.
