Patrick Wright

 

Patrick Wright was born in Charlotte, N.C. in November of 1978 and passed away on October 10th, 2012.

As a curious and expressive baby, his hands were eager to create from the beginning. This developed into an obsession with painting and drawing, when he was a very young child. Patrick enjoyed carried crayons and paper with him everywhere. In fact, his mother often had to pull them out of the tub during bath time. Though Patrick was always responsive to the arts, it had yet to evolve into something serious until his high school years when his art teacher challenged Patrick to pursue art with passion and discipline.

After graduating from high school, Patrick studied fine art at East Carolina University, as well as Queens College in N.C. Shortly thereafter, he met and apprenticed under the late great artist T.L. Lange. Over the next five years, Patrick refined the tone and virtuosity of his work.

According to Patrick, his paintings are derived from an inherent need to generate an impression that will remain long after he is gone. This is evident in his work. He constructs images that are perpetually organic, yet they coexist with personal ideas and are influenced by society. This insures that Patrick’s work will always remain timeless.

By age 24 Patrick's paintings had been exhibited in numerous, prominent galleries including: Hidell Brooks (NC), Mary Martin (SC), Hawthorne Gallery (AL), Mary Bell (IL) and Art Dallas (TX). Patrick also completed an artist in residency at the McColl Center for Visual Arts. His work can also be found in many private and corporate collections, including the Davidson Art Museum and The Charlotte Bobcats.

Patrick now resides in North Carolina with his wife and children. Patrick Atkinson was born in Charlotte, N.C. in November of 1978.
