We called Patrick Martinez the man of 2013 in art and design, before the year even began—he’s an immovable, brilliant force in the contemporary art world, mixing cultural commentary, sculpture, incredibly detailed paintings, and cheeky works of neon. Now we get a peek into his new Los Angeles studio space from the man himself.

Hypebeast just posted the above clip of Matinez at work on new projects. In the clip, he explains his thoughts behind cultural conversation, and the way his artwork engages with the social—or doesn’t. It’s a sick peek into the process and explanation behind the work of one of our favorite visual artists.
