Fine Artist

While working in a large fine art graphics house in Los Angeles in the mid 80’s Lou started experimenting with reproducing his images as fine art photographic reproductions and over the years began selling large mural prints of his work on various substrates as installation pieces.


Lou has exhibited his fine art in galleries in New York City, San Diego, Los Angeles and upstate New York and London. His mix of whimsical & Pop, pattern and puzzle, surrealistic images  have been featured in countless magazines and are also finding their way onto various products. He exhibits his original work in galleries and also produces limited edition prints. In addition, in the last few years, Lou has been very involved in product development and licensing, and has been incorporating his work into product design. His Hank & Sylvie images have been chosen for design of a collectible Artist Series of limited edition skateboards and pens due to come out in 2019.


Lou participated in the Cartoon Network's 20th Anniversary Show for ComicCon 2012 in San Diego. His painting for the show is featured in the limited hard cover book published exclusively for Turner Entertainment.


Lou's Pop Surreal and pattern paintings were chosen to be included in the Firebox Artist Collection of hand pressed collectible micro-booklets that is currently touring France as part of a group show of international artists.

Lou Patrou is a curated artist by Virtuosity represented in Asia.

Available for art work licensing, merchandise, exhibition and events.
