Biography

Patrick Wilkins (b. 1987, Germany) is a contemporary visual artist whose works are the expression of stress and anxiety that comes from leading two very different lives; holding down blue collar jobs and being a painter. Patrick is inspired by the humorous, small and meaningful interactions of the everyday reflected in use of pattern, colour, and imagery through his work. His collages are composed of found objects, drawings, and craft materials, resulting in a bright and playful façade that upon further inspection reveals contradictory critical content. Patrick lives and works in Chicago, USA.
