For the music obsessed artist Charlie Oscar Patterson, No. 1-6 Black & Raw is constructed as if it were a piece of music itself. 

Charlie works on 3D relief paintings that bridge a gap between sculpture, painting, and large scale murals. He treats his brushes as if it they were musical instruments, his three-dimensional canvases as a score, and looks to the act of painting as if he were playing this piece of music out loud for the first time. 

Charlie's work is also routed in his fascination with colour and minimal forms. With a background in design from Chelsea College of Art and Design, his work is informed by a structured, gridded approach. 


Charlie Oscar Patterson studied Graphic Design at Chelsea College of Art & Design. His urban art murals can be found all over London, and his canvas work has been exhibited internationally, with two recent solo exhibition Objects For Music at the Adidas Originals Store, London and Lisztomania at Protein Studios London. Charlie is represented by Artual Gallery in Beirut.

Charlie is also exhibiting No. 1-1 Orange & Beige in The Crossover.
