Cultural Currents Artist Highlight – Pattrick Price
Pattrick is a Eugene artist focused on creating colorful murals and artworks that engage the community with inclusion and culture. Moving from Alaska in 2017 enlightened his creativity as a professional artist and expanded his approach to designing site specific murals and artworks around Lane County.
Pattrick designed banners that will line the paths of Riverfront Park through October 31st. The series of digital images, titled “The Colors of Formine”, were culled from Pattrick’s archives of created works collected over the last four years. “I love to use bright colors in my paintings, murals, and digital designs. My hope is that passersby will be captivated by the formline, abstract shapes and creatures depicted in my art.”
The inclusivity of Cultural Currents drew Pattrick to submit his design for Riverfront Banners. He wanted to represent native cultures and native tribes through his art. Pattrick is inspired by the public art in and around Eugene. From murals to the BEAM Project by ArtCity, light and color inspire Pattrick to create and build upon the rich public art that exists.
