Chicago collage artist Tony Fitzpatrick also uses his life experiences to inform his small mixed media pieces. He is a poet, radio personality, and well networked with producers in the film inustry. This experience lends to works that are interdisciplinary in nature because he incorporates different types of art through words and commentary on performance and literature through visual artworks.
