Objects For Music - An abstract extravaganza by Charlie Oscar Patterson  

Updated: Feb 16, 2019

In collaboration with adidas Originals and Creative Debuts

After discovering the ”optical-illusion master” Charlie for the first time last October at The Other Art Fair in London (blog for that past event coming soon - I promise), I couldn’t wait to see his work again at the Objects For Music last Thursday.

Debuting a new body of work, Charlie breaks away from his three dimensional sculptural canvases, while still exploring perceived depth within painted geometric forms to create masterpieces of visual illusion.

The show takes its title from Canadian musician CFCF’s 2013 album ”Music For Objects”; an 8 track masterpiece of electric ambience.

Based on the album in its entirety, the works are an exploration into the relationship between form and colour.

Each painting is an emotional response to the music, directly generated in the mind and translated into tangible forms. Charlie treats colours as musical notes, with tempo and rhythm, to elicit an emotional response from the viewer. 

A fun evening full of art, music and complimentary drinks. A perfect mix of ingredients to blast away those January cobwebs, and kick a new month full or Art & Entertainment.

In addition, as good music, trendy location and good vibes wouldn't be enough, in the middle of the room they featured a Origami workshop.

After few drinks, visitors got their creative juice flowing and unleashed their inner Picasso.

I leave it to you to judge the masterpieces by looking at the gallery below.


Charlie Oscar Patterson's artwork is routed in his fascination with colour and minimal forms. With a background in Graphic Design; studying at Chelsea College of Art & Design, his work is informed by a structured, gridded approach. Charlie works on small scale relief paintings and large scale murals. 

His 3D pieces are an exploration into the relationship between form and colour. These works are a continual questioning of the interaction of colour in a non-representational narrative.

These shaped works break from the tradition of a restrictive picture plane, instead treating the composition as a complete object.
