Patperry kosovo 07e

Pat Perry (b. Michigan, 1991) is an American multi-disciplinary artist. His practice includes painting, drawing, photography, and installing large-scale outdoor murals around the world.

Beginning in the 2010s, the artist's ongoing series of sketchbooks and photos documenting his travels within the United States from freight trains became some of his best-known works, showing scenes of "America from backstage." Perry's murals 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. His studio work explores themes of social and emotional effects of 21st-century technologies, as well as knowledge limits of individual meaning-making. He has held solo exhibitions at Hashimoto Contemporary in New York and Los Angeles, Takashi Murakami's Hidari Zingaro Gallery in Tokyo, Dorothy Circus Gallery in Rome, and a museum show at UICA in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Pat lives and works in Detroit, where he is attempting to regrow a forest on the twelve vacant lots that surround his house.
