Patrick Martinez

Mixed Media Artist

Patrick Martinez has made a name for himself in his native Los Angeles with neon sculptures, paintings and installations that reflect on the social issues impacting marginalized black and brown communities. His pieces pull inspiration from his Filipino,Mexican and Native American heritage, as well as hip-hop culture and signage, LosAngeles architecture and graffiti. Martinez has shown his work in a number of solo and group exhibitions in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, and Minneapolis, among others. He counts Drake among his fans (when Drake saw Martinez’s “Less Drake,More Tupac” neon art piece he instantly bought it for his Miami home.)
