Edgy design combines urban narratives and images from nature in Patrick Haemmerlein’s work. A native of Kinderhook, NY, Haemmerlein currently lives in Los Angeles and 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. You might find trees and birds easily intermixed with tower blocks, graffiti and urban cranes. 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. You can find Patrick’s work at our new gallery space in Walcott St, Bath UK opening in April 2017 and at art fairs throughout the year
