Statement

“I’m not concern about how to define or classify my work; a medium is only a tool, not a purpose itself. I use many kinds of mediums because like the human body and all manifestations of nature, diversity is our strength, is what gives our species beauty, and what allows for full expression of the living experience. By means of their rare beauty and humor, my characters would want to stir our thoughts, provoke us feelings, evoke memories or create fantasies.” P.K.

Thirty-four year old Patricia Krebs grew up in Argentina, where she graduated with degrees in Fine Arts Education, Painting, and Contemporary Visual Arts.

Over the last fifteen years, Krebs has had the chance to work in collaboration with artists, writers, actors, artisans, musicians and educators on many projects, in the capacity of a singer, songwriter, producer, illustrator, portraitist, caricaturist, muralist, graphic designer, and creating puppets, props, set design, costumes and theatrical makeup.

These collaborations have influenced Krebs’ paintings, sculptures and illustrations, and inspired her to include and fuse elements from different artistic expressions in her visual work.

Her artwork has been exhibited internationally in galleries, including Abasto & Loft-Espacio-Alfa in Buenos Aires, Cactus Gallery in Eagle Rock, The Courtyard Gallery in Idyllwild, C1D Gallery in Long Beach, GhettoGloss & Monkeyhouse Galleries in Silver Lake, C.A.V.E. Gallery in Venice, EcoLogicalArt in MidWilshire, Infusion & ArtDeCollectors Galleries in Los Angeles, Ave50 & Acorn Galleries in Highland Park, and The Folk Tree & Fremont Galleries in Pasadena; as well as in cultural centers, including Recoleta, Gral. San Martín, José Hernández & Argentine Society of Writers Cultural Centers in Buenos Aires; Islas Malvinas Cultural Center in La Plata; and Korean Cultural Center in Los Angeles.

In her work, whatever the medium, Krebs talks about life: the complexity of humanity, the connections within ourselves, between each other, to the Earth. 

Lately, Krebs has been working on two series where she combines disassembled electronics, recycled objects, and found natural elements: "Guardianas,” strong female protectors of the earthly realm who can also inspire our dreams in a playful way; and "Animas in the Matrix,” soulful spirits in the machine.

Krebs' art work have been published in books, CD covers, magazine articles and educational posters; she has designed books and book covers for publishers (Librujas, LOA Publications, USal Editions, ICMus, Three Wishes Publishing Company, Classic Tales n' Tunes) and illustrated children's picture books, such as Zee... Adventure One: Borrowing China; Circus Fever; Classic Songs, Rhymes and Activities in English, Spanish and ASL; and On Your Mark, Get Set, Go!

Her work was selected for the Latino Heritage Month 2007, 2008 & 2009 Cultural Guides, presented by the Mayor and published by the Department of Cultural Affairs of the City of Los Angeles, and also selected out of hundreds to be featured on the 2009 invitations for the LHM Opening Celebration.

Recently, her illustrations were featured in Decisio Magazine#20, published by the Center of Regional Cooperation for the Education of Adults in Latin America and the Caribbean, CREFAL, sponsored by UNESCO and the Mexican Government.

In January of 2010, Krebs received a a Certificate of Special Recognition "in appreciation of her outstanding and invaluable artistic contribution to the City of Los Angeles 2009 Latino Heritage Month" by the Department of Cultural Affairs of LA, presented at the exhibition "CELEBRANDO!" at Fremont Gallery in South Pasadena.
