    Born in Rochester New York in the mid 50’s, Lou Patrou has been drawing and painting faces and figures since he was a teenager and has been steadily creating a body of work with a portfolio that spans over four decades.

    Lou’s work is some times difficult to categorize because he doesn’t always use the same artistic language, repeat the same disciplines or follow a straight theme direction with his work. Some pieces are whimsical and colorful and have a strong design sense, some are serious black & white surrealistic pieces and others pop culture iconic. The one definitive thing you could say is that Lou Patrou is obsessed with making faces and finding new ways to create designs and forms out of them and inside of them. In the 1980’s he did a lot of spontaneous works and now plans his drawings and paintings out more carefully with more design focus and also has scaled up the work.

    Lou currently lives in the greater New York City area in the Hudson Valley.
