Born and raised in Brooklyn NY, Patrick Dougher is a self-taught artist, musician, poet, educator, art therapist and spiritual activist. He has used the arts to empower and support the socio-emotional growth and health of “at-risk” and disenfranchised youth of NYC for over 20 years. Through his art Patrick seeks to inspire and to celebrate the noble beauty and divine nature of people of African descent and to connect urban African American culture to its roots in sacred African art, spirituality and ritual.

Patrick works across a range of media, including painting, sculpture and collage, often incorporating found items, such as crushed drinks cans. Recent work includes the mixed media painting on wood series, Cease For Peace and metal sculptures made from discarded rusted items.
