Neons are one of Patrick Martinez’s most recognizable series of work, oftentimes utilizing hip-hop inspired snippets of text. For this latest limited edition (run of 25 + 5 APs) entitled I Am, the Los Angeles-based artist has referenced 1968 civil rights protest signs, continuing the aspect of his work that deals with social issues. Each piece consists of 11″ x 19″ neon on black plexiglass and comes signed and numbered. Those interested should contact The Mistake Room thru email ([email protected]).
