“Very unusual and distinctive.”

Lawrence Rinder, Dean of the College CCA,
former Curator, Whitney Museum, New York.

“This is the strongest use of color I've seen in a long time."

Kara Walker, Artist (MacArthur Fellowship - Genius Grant)

“These paintings have such a strong presence about them! They are eerie in a way because I begin to imagine them as an encrypted cyber-lifeforce that is alien to us."
Brian McDonald, Artist


PATRICK DINTINO holds three degrees in fine and industrial arts: after earning a BA degree in Industrial Arts from San Diego State University in 1988, he completed both a BFA degree (1999) and an MFA degree (2001) in painting from the California College of Arts and Crafts. Born in San Francisco in 1964, Dintino has resided in California his entire life, yet his travels abroad have also informed and inspired a diversity of creative endeavors. In 1989 he co-founded Artists in Motion art collective, a group of artists who created funk-art fashion, sculpture and furniture out of reclaimed materials. In 1990 he co-founded a musical ensemble called ‘Naked Earth,’ and became Art Director for Ecodisc Records. In 1994 he returned to the San Francisco bay area to emerse himself in the vibrant art and music scene and enrolled in CCAC in 1998. In 2000 Dintino was invited as a guest artist to work with Sol LeWitt to create “Sol LeWitt: A Retrospective” at SFMOMA. A finalist for SFMOMA’s SECA emerging artist award, and a recipient of the Pollack/Krasner Foundation Grant, Dintino also teaches painting and drawing at California College of the Arts.
