25. Less is More by Patrick Martinez, 2011

Patrick Martinez, also known as Complex's Man of the Next Year in Art & Design, created the brilliant neon piece Less is More (also known as Less Drake More Tupac). The minimal blue and green neon sign certainly made waves upon its unveiling in 2011. Martinez found further notoriety when Drake bought the neon piece from Los Angeles' Known Gallery. As neon continues to rise in contemporary art trends, we're certain that art historians will look back at both Martinez's light work and paintings and see him as one of the forerunners of our time.
