Patric Rozario is an artist from Malaysia. He has been living and working in Doha Qatar since 2005. Qatar’s history is rich with pearling as the main occupation, until modern times. Sometime in 2009, Patric started integrating Swarovski pearls in his abstract paintings on canvas, by embedding pearls in acrylic paint. This idea occurred to him when by “happy mistake” a pearl fell on wet acrylic paint. While he worked on his paintings, these Swarovski crystal pearls and other semi-precious stones were placed in a glass plate, rendering it easy for the artist to pick them up when needed. One day the artist noticed that the sunlit glass plate itself was a beautiful work of art, with all the pearls, crystals and semi-precious stones bedecking the plate. Pearls and Swarovski crystals on painted ceramic and glass plates will it be. Thus, Pearlappetite was born.Pearlappetite is Patric Rozario's signature creation, and he has been creating these from 2009.
