Nick Patten, a contemporary realist painter, is a  native of Troy, New York, he received a B.A. in Fine Arts from the College of Saint Rose in Albany, New York. People love the mysterious light in his paintings, and one art critic referred to him as an “American Vermeer.”

He has also been referred to as a Master of Light and Shadow because of the style of his paintings. Among other awards, recently Patten received the Best in Show prize in a juried show in upstate New York.

He has been a full time artist for more than 20 years, and he states that: ''my goal is to be able to paint what I want to see''.


“Settling on a composition for one of my room interior paintings is a progressive process. I pick and choose the most interesting and necessary elements from an array of photographs, often adding items from my imagination. Light & Dark is a primary focus of my painting, with particular attention to brush stroke and gradation in the darkest areas. Through working from photographs with the aim of creating believable paintings, I strive to bring a quiet drama to everyday scenes. My paintings are never intended to be “photographic”. In part, my aim is to make paintings where the content of the image is most compelling, and how the painting was made is secondary. In a sense, attempting to make the work exceed the medium.” Nick Patten
