About Patrick Whelan

Patrick Whelan PATRICK WHELAN

Artist’s Statement

“Inside every face is a reflection of all humanity.
Look into another person’s face and on some level you will always see yourself.
My work intends to demonstrate this. Whispering from within the modeled textures of charcoal or paint is always a voice; a voice of yearning or regret, of loss or triumph. And it tells a story, your story ... listen ...”


Artist’s Bio

Patrick Whelan remembers walking into a room when he was about 5 years old. Mesmerized by a portrait series his uncle had painted, he found them magical.

A passionate and devoted artist, Mr. Whelan remains captivated by the magic of creation. He began illustrating for magazines while a student and continued to expand his career with clients that included: Random House, Bantam-Doubleday-Dell, Harper Collins, Simon & Schuster, Tor Books, A&E Television and many others. Whelan’s commissioned illustrations ranged from the absurd.— a depiction of Rodney Dangerfield doing a Fabio impersonation – to the sublime – an angel flying through the night sky, sprinkling stardust over New York. Among Mr. Whelan’s hundreds of illustrations are a dozen Nancy Drew book covers, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland and Journey to the Center of the Earth. Additionally, his work is featured in volumes 3, 13 and 20 of the ‘Spectrum Book of Fantastic Art.’

Mr. Whelan's evocative and romantic fine art reflects the natural evolution of a talented and gifted career. His exquisitely crafted original oils and limited edition prints are enjoyed in private collections across the United States, Europe and Asia. Whelan’s collectors have included Bob Hope, Larry Hagman, and Michael Jackson who acquired seven pieces less than two weeks before his death. These were the very last paintings added to Mr. Jackson’s collection.

Patrick Whelan is a 1991 honors graduate of the Laguna College of Art and Design.
