Patrick “Duffy” De Armas and his partners at Electric Coffin are in the business of bringing fine-art sensibilities to commercial spaces, and they’re unapologetic about their improvisational process and their point of view.

De Armas will be a featured speaker at the 2016 SEGD Conference: Experience Seattle!
