Patrick Haemmerlein

A native of Kinderhook, NY, Patrick Haemmerlein is an artist living in Los Angeles. After receiving his BFA from The Savannah College of Art and Design in 2000, Patrick took the long road trip cross country and settled down in LA. Reflecting on the issues of the day, Patrick explores themes of nature vs. industry and how they can coexist or clash. The buildings and cityscapes are from Los Angeles while the animal and farm photos were mostly taken around his hometown area in upstate NY. They are not only a juxtaposition of nature and industry, but a combination of imagery from his two homes- one rural and one urban. The artworks are mixed-media, using elements of collage, photography, design and print techniques. His urban, street and nature inspired graphic design work is often commissioned for products such as skateboards and apparel. Patrick exhibits widely in galleries across the US
