Patrick O’Brien attended Loyola High School in L.A. where he studied drawing, photography, and ceramics. His grammar school art teacher was part of his inspiration to make art in the future. Patrick is also fascinated with learning about all kinds of subjects. He loves to garden, play backgammon, boogie board, and play tennis.
Patrick has shown his work since college in many galleries and cafes. He found that making art on his own time would create more wealth than working nine to five. During 2015 and 2016, Patrick spent time in Zagreb, Croatia making art the whole time. Now he’s back in L.A. making art again. His work simply unfolds based on the materials at hand. He claims that his work is not meant to make a statement.
