Patrick Kramer is an artist hailing from Springville, Utah, who specializes in remarkably hyper-realistic paintings. A perfectionist by nature, art was an outlet for his obsessive personality allowing him to focus on getting things "just right".
Taking art classes throughout high school, he was encouraged by his teachers and eventually decided to study art at Brigham Young University. There he continued to focus on realism, improving his technical skills and craftsmanship. Becoming more and more detailed, his work began to rival that of the photograph. Painting whatever captures his interest, Patrick paints a variety of subjects, from still life's to landscapes to city scenes.
“In my work, I hope the viewer senses this tension between photography and the handmade -- the instantaneous and the prolonged, the ubiquitous and the unique, the impartial and the personal.”
