Patrick Francis

A prolific painter, Patrick Francis works primarily in acrylic on paper. His paintings draw on personal experiences and encounters as well as popular culture and art history. Bold in their colour palette, the expressive portraits range from studies of well-known celebrities across centuries. Francis (1991) has worked as a studio artist at Arts Project Australia since 2009 and had his first solo exhibition in the Arts Project gallery in 2014. He has been included in numerous group shows including ‘Salon; gems from the stockroom’, Robin Gibson Gallery; ‘Melbourne Now’, The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, Melbourne; and ‘Connected’, Yarra Gallery, Federation Square, Melbourne. He was a recipient of the Art & Australia/Credit Suisse Private Banking Contemporary Art Award in 2012 and is held in numerous private collections.
