Statement

BIO

His paintings have been called, "a sublime blend of Tim Burton and Botticelli" by the Baltimore Examiner. Patrick Fatica attended Ringling School of Art and Design from 1990 to 1994. He moved to Orlando, Florida in 1995. He spent the first few years developing a production company with a few friend called Eat Cake Productions. He directed several original plays and the 16mm film "Five Miles from Heaven," which appeared in festivals around the country. After completing the film, he and his two business partners designed, opened and ran 2 music venues on the east side of Orlando and downtown Orlando called Back Booth. After almost a decade of traveling down different artistic paths, he picked up the paintbrush again and dedicated himself to his painting. With over 30 shows between 2007 and 2008 Patrick's Pop-Surreal portraits have spanned from Los Angeles, CA to Madison, WI. Recently the Phoenix Sun Times said about his solo Wind-Up Gallery exhibition, "We can't think of anything more delightful than indulging in meticulously rendered prurient fantasies. This stuff is so sweet it's almost rotten."
