Squeeze Art Collective is proud to present local artist Dave Van Patten and recent Pow!Wow! muralist, as our speaker at our event, Process: Artist Lecture Series! The evening starts at 6pm with a potluck style social hour. We will hear Dave Van Patten speak at around 8pm and you'll get a chance to ask him questions afterwards.
Dave Van Patten is a Long Beach/ Los Angeles based artist focused on illustration, using paper cut outs, acrylic, and ink. The bulk of his inspiration is pulled from dark humor comics, 1960's surrealism, psychedelic garage rock aesthetics, and modern societal absurdity . His work has been seen in Juxtapoz, Vice, NPR, Intentional Quarterly, Mt. Hope, L.A. Record Magazine, and various L.A. based art magazines. He has self published several graphic novel zines and twisted “children’s books for grown ups.” Currently, he is adapting a short story from Arthur Bradford into a full length graphic novel.
