Patrick Martinez: Po-lice

March 23 - April 16, 2017

Los Angeles artist Patrick Martinez chose to turn to his own artistic dash cam to focus on the never-ending reports of police brutality that have come to light over the past few years. Taking on the ultra-American Pee Chee folders, Martinez replaces typical American imagery with illustrations that accurately depict the deathly racial situation coming to light in America right now: police brutality and misconduct. "The original Pee Chee folders had a theme of youth and sports," says Martinez. "I'm replacing that all-American sports scene with real situations."
