For my first featured artist from the Behance post I want to introduce New York based artist Pato Paez. Pato was originally born in Argentina and actually attended medical school there, before studying at The Arts Students League of New York. How cool is that!
His work which has shown in New York, Los Angelas and Europe consists mainly of paintings, illustrations, installations and murals. While his techniques and media change from piece to piece the subject matter remains the same whimsical scenarios, with the Narcissus Baby image being the popular favourite.
Patos work in large and small scale murals has definately taken interior design to the next level. With his bold use of colors and creative expression adding energy and flair to any space that his work occupies.
I have picked out some personal favourites to share with you and you can see more by visiting Patos Portfolio and make sure you check out his shop House of Imuri featuring a nice selection of prints and silkscreens.
