So-Gnar Creative Division
As local, Denver-based artists and creators, the chance to contribute color and vibrancy as well as add value to the community is what we live for. Our goal with each project is to create a work of art that people from all walks of life can enjoy and take pride in.
We design and implement high-quality art designs with subject matter that is universally enjoyed and timeless.
Pat Milbery and Pat Mckinney have been artists and creators for decades and have been painting together as a team for 3+ years. Each has their own unique style that they bring to the table and their work together melds everything from realism to comic book, pop art to design and everything in between.
We specialize in both large-scale public art as well as commercial work and have had the honor of working together with local communities to create works of art for all the enjoy. We’ve had ample experience organizing and managing large-scale community projects and have had the honor of hosting two TEDxMileHigh Adventures around the city of Denver. Our street art collaborations adorn the walls and surfaces of dozens of city parks, boutiques, breweries, residences, bars, food trucks, and other businesses primarily in Denver, around the Rocky Mountains, across the country and around the globe. We’ve also helped curate and create major art installation projects for brands including VISIT Denver, the Town of Granby, WalkDenver, Express Clothing, City of Denver, Denver Public Schools, the Ford Motor Company, X Games, Budweiser, Zumiez, Loveland Ski Area, Wahoo Fish Tacos, Pabst Blue Ribbon and more.
