Patrick has been a professional artist for over a decade and has shown his paintings in some of the finest galleries throughout the country. With over 100 solo and group exhibitions between 2005 and 2016, his work has become well known in the pop surreal art movement. Fatica is best known for his oil portraits of wide eyed nymph-like women. His themes often depict these creatures as fallen heroes trapped in a self inflicted isolation. Patrick has added filmmaking into the mix expanding the stories he tells with moving pictures and sound. His animated short film MONSTER played in over 20 renown film festivals across the world. It recently won Best Animation at the DIY Film Festival in Los Angeles, CA and Best Animated Short at the Here Be Dragons Film Festival in London.
