Dom Pattinson

Dom Pattinson

Refining and nourishing his unpolished creativity as a younger man, Dom Pattinson attended Winchester School of Art and graduated with a BA (Hons); his post-graduate education saw him matriculate to Glasgow School of Art to study for an MA which stoked a pursuit for a creative outlet and a platform to convey a message from.

Dom’s predominant influences came two-fold. He spent a length of time living in the Soviet Union and was immersed in the propaganda art that Russia was in-bedded in and then Northern Ireland, where he witnessed young Sinn Fein activists with heightened emotions, which were expressed with politically motivated public displays – street art in its rawest form. Dom “realised that love and hate were different sides the same coin” and it was this concept of conflicted emotion that reminded him of the strife of teenage-hood.

Seeing the irony in watching his daughters grow from sweetness into women-hood, through emotional trauma, and not being able to control it, plays a pivotal role in his work. This is amplified by his ten years of turbulence he experienced as a teacher. Teaching allowed relationships with teenagers other than his own to form, from whom he draws stories and emotions and consolidates the dilemmas his own children faced, which conceptually flourishes into some of his best work to-date.
