Born on Long Island, New York, on May 24th, 1986, Patrick Jackson Murphy has always been fueled and captivated by emotional intensities.
It’s no wonder his first endeavors into art were replicating moments of intense energy from his childhood world, from dynamic ‘do-or-die’ scenes in his favorite comic books to an array of ferocious dunks by his favorite NBA players.
As his abilities and artistic instincts matured, his own process began to turn inward, and by the end of college, his focus was no longer on the external world, but rather on capturing his own emotional intensity. He believes that the meditative-like preparation necessary for this artistic style, the balancing and harmonizing of his mind with his body, is just as important as the physical act of touching paint to canvas. He deeply senses that this entire process, one that never fails in guiding him to a novel destination, is his one true path to travel.
