Patrick

Patrick Francis is an award winning artist and his work is included in the collection of the Art Gallery of NSW. Patrick won the ARTAND Australia/Credit Suisse Private Banking Contemporary Art Award 2012, the Victorian Multicultural Art Award 2014 and the Victorian Young Achievers Art Award 2014. His work has been displayed in numerous metropolitan and regional galleries.

Patrick’s subject matter draws on images of art history classics, pop culture, film icons, as well as facets of his daily life, including his sporting and community interests. Inspired by Michelangelo, Goya, Raphael, Velazquez, Van Gogh, Rubens and Gorky, Patrick enjoys interpreting the work of the Masters with his characteristic bold, impressive colours and simplification of the illustrative plane.

His work recalls the intensity of modernist movements like Fauvism and German Expressionism, stripping back the image to its main components, distilling portraits into purer forms of representation, focusing attention on key elements loaded with emotive value.

Patrick lives with autism.
