Artistical

Under the name "L.A. Tez One" Pat works as a transdisciplinary avant-garde artist. He grew up in the inspiring 90 / 00's with graffiti, cyberspace, street culture & art, graphic and interaction design. The upcoming digital arts got his attention and the next logical step was the Willem de Kooning Acamey where he graduated as BA in Interactive Multi Media (IMM), one of the first Dutch academies with this direction.

His contemporary art can be described a mix of 3D graffiti, abstract and cubism art and can be recognised by the colourful and dynamic style Tez's works breaths.

The work starts as a sketch or photo and evolves after a self developed proces of sketching, drawing, constructing into a virtual 3D model or scene. The high resolution compositions take days to render to an image and are transferred in a limited edition to canvas.
