Hailing from Michigan (the undisputed champion and pound-for-pound greatest state in America…no bias whatsoever), Pat Perry is an illustrator with a penchant for the inherent beauty of the American Midwest. His highly detailed and brilliantly composed portfolio of personal and professional work is executed in variety of media and styles. To be entirely honest, this artist has been on our radar for a LONG time, but the most daunting task was deciding which of his works to include — it took us quite some time to pare it down to the “must-haves”.
According to his bio, “the lands of the north, colorful people, music, and the ordinary streets of the Midwest have always moved him”. This is where we feel Pat excels: the ability to see, appreciate, reconceptualize, and produce/expose beauty in otherwise banal circumstances. Don’t get us wrong — we love the Midwest. We were born and raised in the Midwest and we know how beautiful its people and landscapes can be, so it makes us proud when artists of the caliber of Pat Perry stay true to their roots. Cheers!
