Pat Perry (b. Michigan, 1991) is an American visual artist primarily painting, drawing, photographing, and installing large-scale outdoor mural installations.

Throughout the 2010’s, a series of sketchbooks and photos documenting years of traveling itinerantly around the United States, accidentally became some of Perry’s most well-known works. Simultaneously, his large-scale works and posters have called attention to various social causes through collaborations with groups such as the Beehive Design Collective, AptArts, No More Deaths, and the UN High Commissioner For Refugees.

In 2018, Perry’s largest body of paintings debuted as a solo exhibition titled, National Lilypond Songs at UICA in Grand Rapids, Michigan. In early 2020, several of the works were exhibited alongside new works in a solo exhibition titled, Song and Dance at Takashi Murakami’s Hidari Zingaro gallery in Tokyo.

Perry’s ongoing series of Recital works use a fictional group of performers to animate social and emotional effects of new technologies, as well as knowledge limits and meaning-making. The works include paintings, drawings, and installs of life-size performers on highway medians and roadsides throughout the Midwest. Pat works and lives in Detroit.
