If you are well versed in the history of BMX in the Toronto area, the name Patrick Krzyzanowski may sound familiar to you. Over the years he has had parts in numerous different video projects. Nowadays Pat’s primary focus has shifted from riding and filming towards fine art. After finishing his degree at the University of Guelph at the end of 2010, and completing an artist residency program in New York City over the summer, he has relocated to Toronto, where he shares a studio space with a few other artists. He’s been busy working on a series of intensely detailed watercolour paintings depicting wild fantasy wrestling scenes for a solo show in September 2011 at the the ISE Cultural Foundation Gallery in New York City. I wanted to catch up with Pat and he took me for a tour of his studio. Click below to check it out.
The studio is shared by three other artists. Most of the space seen here belongs to Nicholas Di Genova.
We were surprised to find that YouTube had removed the audio from the first chapter of the video, which had an original rap song about the ICC.
Some work by Andrew Wilson in the studio’s flat file.
More by Nicholas Di Genova.
Checking out Yo Sick Zine.
