“I couldn’t imagine living in a world without color. There is no joy with out it and since I was a kid, I always choose the most colorful toys and products to play with. Now as an artist I want to bring more color in this world. I love to play with different combinations and contrasts and make people happy with my art.”
Color is definitely what attracted my attention. Patrick’s use a quite strong and bright, palettes. It is fascinating to wonder about how artists choose their colors and how viewers could interpret the message. As the Pantone’s Guide to Communicating with Color by Leatrice Eiseman says there are a lot studies behind what colors mean to humans, how do they make us feel, and how do we choose them. Different colors reflect diverse moods.
Cue Josef Albers (1888-1976) German-American painter, renowned art teacher and one of the pioneering voices in the fields of color theory says
“Color is the most relative medium in art. […] One and the same color evokes innumerable readings”
There is always a personal relation and experience to it! Definitely interesting is the different perception that each of us could have of the same object. Brilliant, is instead the reality that there is always something hidden; something we will never know about the artist and his artworks. This is also what makes an artworks, artwork!
Patrick divides his passion between feet-on-the-ground-art and sky-high design. Inspired by his Dad, since his was little he show passion to drawn and create things. Once he grew up, he further fell in love with art (during the college) and design at university. “I decided to study Product Design at the University of Pforzheim. It was a time I will never forget – studying with skilled, creative people from all around the world was a big pleasure. I did my bachelor thesis project in cooperation with Recaro Aircraft Seating, and I developed a whole new Business Class Seat concept for the future. This set my path working in the aircraft industry.”
He also puts his creative energy and paint on canvas. He’s definitely having a creating life! His artworks have already been exhibited in galleries such as the House Of Art in Munich (Kunstsalon 2012) and also galleries in Poland (Ortszeit 2011, travelling exhibition).
