Laurence Gartel

Laurence Gartel - About the Artist
A Living Legend

Hailed by many as the first graphic artist of the digital age, Laurence Gartel stands at the top of his artistic niche as the acknowledged "Father of Digital Art." A born and bred New Yorker, he perfected his iconoclastic style with the likes of Andy Warhol, whom he introduced to computer artistry even before Mac and the PC came on the scene. Like Warhol, Gartel blurred the line and created a bridge between fine art and graphic artistry.

Early associations with icons like Debbie Harry of "Blondie" and Sid Vicious of the "Sex Pistols"€ helped to launch him into the public limelight. Decades later, his talents are still in demand by modern pop idols, and his past client list includes pop stars Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears.

These days, Gartel, who now calls Miami home, is shifting gears to take his art to a whole new frontier  car art. Each iconic paint job tells a story. For instance, Gartel says, "On the 1959 Cadillac I depict the space race against the former Soviet Union as well as Castro’s influence and the addition of Hawaii as America ’s 50th state."€

His "Auto-Motion" exhibition has been captured on film for the big screen in Britain, Australia, and many other countries around the globe as well as in a luxury edition of a hard-bound coffee table book. He followed that up with his "Supercar"  series and then, in 2012, with the Fireball Run: Northern Exposure film and live streaming event.

His commissioned creations include: a Tesla Electric Art Roadster, a Ferrari Scuderia 430, a 1984 Rolls Royce Sprit, a 1957 Lincoln Premier Convertible, a 1959 Fleetwood Cadillac Limousine, and a 1963 Chevy Pick Up among other fine vehicles.

Gartel is perhaps best known for the very first "digital photographic"  piece for Absolut Vodka with Absolut Gartel. He was also featured in Apple ’s famous  "Think Different" ad and has created works of art for Coca-Cola, the National Basketball Association, and other top brands and personalities.

Gartel achieved the prodigious accomplishment of having his work hang in the Museum of Modern Art before he turned 25, and he remains on the cutting edge of his profession today. His resume includes exhibits at Palm Beach Photographic Center, Joan Whitney Payson Museum, Princeton Art Museum, Bibliotheque Nationale Paris, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, and the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern History at the Smithsonian to name a few.

His work has also graced the pages and covers of many well-known magazines such as Forbes, ART-IN-AMERICA, Artforum, Sotheby’s, Art and Auction, Art and Antiques, ArtByte, Scientific American, and NY Magazine.

Gartel earned a BFA degree in Graphics at the School of Visual Arts where he interacted with renowned graffiti artist Keith Haring. He studied for an MA in Photography under Arthur Leipzig at CW Post College and later began his electronic career working side by side with video guru Nam June Paik at Media Study/Buffalo in upstate New York in 1975.

The accomplishments and groundbreaking style of Laurence Gartel have earned him bios in a host of Who’s Who publications around the world, and he has also been the subject of many books including Laurence Gartel: A Cybernetic Romance with an introduction written by Nam June Paik.
