Pat Perry is an artist and illustrator from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Colorful people, music, and the ordinary streets of the Midwest are his greatest inspiration.
Although he is happy to be able to speak and have an audience through his artwork, Perry does his best just to listen and learn from his surroundings.
His art has been exhibited nationwide and commissioned by a range of people. In between jobs, he travels as much as possible.
"I found myself really absorbed looking at Pat Perry’s drawings and paintings. He has a style that looks effortless despite having fairly complex compositions. There’s an intensity in his sketchbook drawings that I found really compelling. It’s really amazing to see how he’s documented his travels and how he uses his experiences to inform his work. I imagine him as the type of artist who has an uncontrollable compulsion to create; someone who’s constantly processing the world around him through his work. And, he’s probably got some pretty crazy travel stories."
