About Patrick Morales-Lee

Patrick Morales-Lee was taught by the painter John Virtue. During the last few years, he has exhibited in a number of shows, selling work to a handful of well know collectors and exhibited alongside artists such as Antony Gormley, Antony Lister, Vhils, Pure Evil and FAILE.

The work deals with the idea of identity and belonging. Fostered at the age of three, Patrick was constantly aware of his surroundings and the need to fit. Looking back, he recognises those feelings as universal and the work looks to explore the ‘human condition’, specifically what makes people do what they do to have a sense of belonging.
