SAD NEWS: Miami artist TMNK (The Man Nobody Knows) aka as Nobody and real name Scott Patterson was found in his studio this past week. He was known for his style of painting including many trademarks such as "Love Stories Suck" and "Art is My Weapon" seen stenciled throughout Wynwood.
Not just a local and definately not a Nobody, as an accomplished artist with solo exhibits in Paris and Italy, creating unique art work on cardboard boxes and various murals throughout Wynwood. We would always chat, whether at Starbucks where he would set up his mobile office fulfilling Ebay orders or skateboarding down the middle of the street and bobbing his head to music at Wood Tavern.
Funny enough in 2012 when Lebron James reigned in Miami, Noboby painted over Billboard for Lebron's video game. That actual sparked an acquaintance with the basketball player, many times inviting Nobody to see Heat games court side.
Definitely part of the character of the neighborhood and art community. Check out his artwork on Instagram @tmnk. Check out this great article on Nobody on The New Tropic.
Come pay respect this Saturday at the 212 Gallery during Wynwood Art Walk.
