10. Patrick Martinez

We love Patrick Martinez. His work takes on social concerns with a distinct voice, blending paint and neon signage to produce brilliant material. Martinez just opened his latest solo exhibition, REEL TAWLK, at Loft In Space, which solidifies his widespread appeal. And, his "Less Drake, More Tupac" piece was bought by hip-hop's favorite sweater wearer himself.
