Patrick Coffaro’s scorchingly bright desert artworks virtually shimmer with heatwaves. Based in Chicago, Coffaro is best known for his blazingly bold images of cacti and the Southwestern desert. He sometimes adds lizards, flowers and the classic longhorn skull to his desert scenes. Coffaro's signature look is achieved with a chine-collé method of coloring and bonding layers of paper with inks, varnish and pressure from a printing press. Collected internationally, Coffaro’s intensely vivid art is featured in galleries throughout the United States.
