Pat Falco

Location: Boston, MA
Space: Pat Falco's Studio
November 2011

Pat Falco is not a douchebag, but even if we decided to call him one in this post, he'd probably not even care and end up just chuckling about it later. He's that rad of a guy and has a great sense of humor that shows in his artwork. We had the pleasure of meeting Pat at Lincoln Arts Project or LAP Gallery in Waltham, MA, a space he is co-running that has been generating some serious life in the art scene around the Boston area. We visited Pat in his studio at The Distillery in South Boston where we got to be amused time and time again by his work and ended up buying a painting for our own collection (and trust me, we are kind of cheap, so we don't buy a lot of anything). Pat is a graduate of MassART, where he played on the basketball team and studied illustration. His work often features historical figures, basketball players and witty phrases that will make you laugh. You can find his artwork adorning clothes in his brand, Pedro Romero, a name that often gets him street cred for being Hispanic when he is actually Italian. You can pay Pat a visit during open studios at The Distillery or at LAP (you'll know the building, it's the one with a Caleb Neelon and Katie Yamasaki mural on it). Enjoy the images below!
