Herbert Patterson began drawing at the age of 12. He loved to build model cars and collect Hot Wheels with his brother Gerald. They were BIG fans of Hot Rod magazine, which Herbert poured over as inspiration for his earliest drawings. Patterson’s interest in cars continues today and he enjoys watching drag races and is an everyday car enthusiast. He is known for his incredible memory and eye for detail and it’s common to find the model, year, design, and advertising logos included in his drawings. If you spend time talking to him about his work, you’ll find each piece has a corresponding story. He envisions his work being hung in both galleries and children’s rooms alike. His goals are to license his artwork for merchandise, including apparel and paper goods. This is Patterson’s first solo show as part of V+V’s inaugural artist-of-the-month exhibition series.
