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.

I was asked to sign this limited edition soccer ball to celebrate the #UNDFTDGALAXY collaboration. My first thought: paint a quick piece on it. The ball will be auctioned off to benefit #LAGF after it comes back from it’s trip of bring signed by some awesome people. Got it kicked over to the studio from @ogonzal1 and ready to pass it along to @lukewessman . Thank you @undefeatedinc @mls @lagalaxy  #LA #patrickmartinez #art
