ABOUT THE ARTIST
Patrick Mahoney started drawing as soon as he could hold a pencil. A steady stream of public and private lessons cultivated his talents, while growing up in southern California and Albuquerque, New Mexico.
He started winning awards for his artwork while in high school, and sold his first painting before he graduated. After getting his diploma, he attended the Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design in Denver, Colorado.
Patrick's inspiration comes from music and a desire to capture the perfection of nature’s beauty. Able to paint in any style, Patrick's early career focused on photo-realism. Today he uses his talents to create minimalistic elegance in his abstract and impressionistic pieces. One can see from reviewing his body of work, that he is a truly versatile artist.
Patrick creates new originals and duplicates them for his wholesale clients (we call them Reproroginals), while producing a steady stream of commissioned artwork for individual clients. To date, Patrick has sold over 12,000 paintings.
Arriving on a rocketship from a far-off galaxy, the infant ARTBOY'S creativity grew to maturity & he found himself possessed of amazing artistic talent. Now he is a legendary RIGHT BRAIN HERO! Whilst using his amazing powers in a never-ending battle to pay the rent, AB has assumed the disguise of Patrick Mahoney de Boney Joney, mild-mannered, loving husband & formidable father of two genetically advanced offspring. ARTBOY is trying hard not refer to himself in the third person & remain humble . . . well . . . Let's just say, it's easier said than done.
