About the artist
Strider Patton is a San Francisco based multidisciplinary artist who specialises in large-scale mural painting. Practicing since 2006, he is a self taught artist, academically trained anthropologist and central to all his work is sharing stories. This can be in the form of murals or fine art, abstraction or figurative imagery, and solo or collective creative experiences. He creates site-responsive projects that engage with observers. With all his work the goal is to create triggers for experience, to create unforgettable spaces, and to expand awareness of place.
After earning a MA degree in anthropology and social change, he has been connecting the dots between culture, art, story and meaning. His interests in people, places, and stories informs his art. To be able to activate spaces and share these poetic truths in the form of dynamic art is something he holds with great respect and responsibility. Patton’s design process includes research and dialogue to reveal underlying stories.
