Lucky Patino

Graffiti Artist & Graphic Designer

Hello, my name is Gustavo Patino aka LUCKY PATINO as I am known in the Graffiti “underworld”. I am an urban artist based out of Porterville, California. I have been doing graffiti since the age of 8.

At a very young age, I became a gang member loyal to the Mexican Mafia. I grew up in very dangerous situations which led me to an early life of crime. Unfortunately, as a result of my lifestyle, I spent over a third of my life incarcerated. As a young adult I was fighting four life sentences as I went to trial awaiting my fate from 12 jurors. As I was sentenced to 16 years in state prison, I thought my life was over. I saw no hope as reality set it and there was no evading the “cup” that was set before me to drink its bitter reality.

Little did I know that destiny would have me cross paths with someone very influential in the entertainment industry. Fortunately, my last phase of incarceration changed my life in a positive direction when I met a fellow inmate Anand Jon Alexander who began to nurture and mentor my creativity which unbeknownst to me, life had predestined our paths to cross in a very significant manner.
