about: patrick martinez
Patrick Martinez focuses on the phenomenology of his surroundings. He brings sublime beauty to things that aren't thought of as conventionally beautiful.

He uses subject matter such as everyday people that aren't usually painted into the limelight and elements of the city that would be thought of as objects we take for granted. He uses these objects as communicative mediums.

Patrick works with intellect and intuition in creating pieces of art that reflect and document situations that are ever present around him. Vitality, impact and rhythm are the essence and energy in his artwork.
