About the Event

Born and raised in the San Gabriel Valley, Patrick Martinez’s L.A. suburban upbringing and his diverse cultural

background (Filipino, Mexican and Native American), provided him with a unique lens through which he

interprets his surroundings. Influenced by the Hip Hop movement, Martinez cultivated his art practice through

graffiti, which later led him to the ArtCenter, where he earned a BFA with honors in 2005. Through his facility

with a wide variety of media (painting, neon, ceramic and sculpture), Martinez colorfully scrutinizes otherwise

everyday realities of suburban and urban life in L.A. with humor, sensitivity and wit. His art often serves to

celebrating leaders and thinkers whose work resonates strongly today, in addition to memorializing victims of

police brutality.
