Patrick Camut was born 1989 in New York, NY. His family moved to Charleroi, PA a town south of Pittsburgh in the mid 1990s to be closer to family. Growing up around family who worked in Pittsburgh’s steel industry sparked Patrick’s interest in metal. His materials of choice are structural steel and repurposed scrap metal. Addicted to the excitement of finding new material from local scrap yards plays a major role in his process. The industrial material selected for sculptures create an aesthetic that is intimidating. Through the functional elements of his sculpture, humor is found giving the art a balance of being serious and playful.
