Patrick Gannon

Portrait Of Ebb With Kamon

Fukuoka, Japan

Patrick’s artwork is created entirely of cut-paper (and often wood) in his studio in Fukuoka, Japan where he lives with his wife. His artwork brings together his life experiences in urban Japan with his upbringing on a farm in New Jersey. Patrick studied literature at Providence College, Rhode Island, and he received his MFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Patrick’s work is exhibited throughout galleries in the United States and Japan.

“In this piece, I explore the concepts epitomized by the circle: renewal, rebirth, eternity. A recycled hubcap is the ideal canvas for such themes. It has been an honor to be part of a project that so deftly balances education, a social conscience and a sense of whimsy. ”Patrick Gannon
