About bollee patino

Bollee Patino is a contemporary street mix-media artist with a fast-paced practice between hasty motifs and representation of abstract expressionism while fusing graffiti and street elements with more traditional techniques in his acrylic and spray-paint works. Combining screen print stencil work with hand-painted details and a saturated background of bright, eye-popping color with a vibrant abstract foundation.


His artwork contains layered metaphors of social views while flirting with identity subjects of ego and a sense of self. Often pulling from his graffiti background with influences from underground fashion, skate and hip-hop cultures and other forms of design movements to set a foundation of his infused painting.


Bollee received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in graphic design where he leverages this creative process to become the framework of his artwork. With its multilayered metaphors, vibrant colors and bold abstractions, Bollee’s works are a daring, chaotic reflection of the complexity of the inner self.
