Patrick Martinez ~ Visual Artist from Los Angeles by Estevan Oriol

Our favorite art exhibition of the year so far was Patrick Martinez's "Break Bread" installation in Bell Gardens. Now, take a look inside his studio and how he creates his signature pieces in this video by Estevan Oriol, who describes the video thusly:

I met Patrick back in the days when we both were working with Rime Magazine, Mister Cartoon and I have since then have worked with him on many projects and also with our company S.A. Studios, he did the lay out 2 of my books 1979 for Adidas and L.A. Woman for Drago Publishing as well as designs for Joker Brand and the "Righteous Kill" movie poster campaign, to name a few. Actually there's too many projects to remember. Basically what i'm trying to say is He's a bad Mother Fucker at this Art thing. when you have a chance go check him out.
