Patrick Martinez at Work ~ Photos by Hussein Katz

Los Angeles native Patrick Martinez is always working. This year alone he showed his latest paintings and sculptures at a solo show, Forbidden Fruit, and has been a participant in several group shows around the world. He continues to create new work, stretching his boundaries and inventing new ones, all while preparing a new group show called "The Thrill Of Victory And The Agony Of Defeat: Sports In Contemporary Art." The exhibition features work from Gregory Bojorquez, Hiro Kurata, Mark Mulroney, Shizu Saldamando, Patrick Martinez, Andrew Schoultz, Vincent Valdez, and Mario Ybarra Jr., and opens on November 21st at New Image Art.

Photographer Hussein Katz recently visited Patrick Martinez' Studio, and photographed the artist at work. Please enjoy this selection of images from his visit...
