Mini-Documentary of Illustrator Pâté


Meet graphic artist Paul Pateman aka Pâté. Known for his visually-arresting images and type compositions, his work is as equally direct and uncomplicated as it is wickedly humorous.
His personal work, regularly exhibited at galleries and sold as posters, includes a series called Cock-A-Doodle, a “dirty alphabet” that’s understandably NSFW.
Once a celebrated, award-winning Creative Director in London’s advertising world, Format’s 2nd episode of InFrame chronicles Pâté’s pursuit of a career he was passionate about — a cause, I’m sure, that would resonate with many of your readers.
After 13 years as a corporate CD, an extended hospital visit led to his epiphany that life can be over in a split second.

    Fantastic. Loved this. Thank you.
    Even though I haven’t had to be in the hospital for a week, I still feel that urge to keep creating, because what if I can’t use my hands one day? Or go blind? Or get hit by a bus tomorrow? Not the only reason I draw and paint, but it makes you think. :)
