Patrick Nagel - United States
Art Brokerage: Park West Artist: Patrick Nagel American Artist: b. 1945-1984 - Patrick Nagel was born in Dayton, Ohio, but was brought up in the Los Angeles area, where he spent most of his life. He studied art at Chouinard Art Institute, and in 1969 received Nagel's Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from California State University at Fullerton. Beginning in 1976, Patrick Nagel began contributing regularly to Playboy, which extended the exposure and popularity of "the Nagel Woman" to a huge and loyal audience. In 1978, he created his first poster image for Mirage Editions. He also painted the cover of rock group Duran Duran's Rio album, which became the number one album in the world photograph, Nagel would create a simplified drawing, the translate the drawing to a painting -- always "simplifying, working to get more across with fewer elements," note Elena Millie. Bold, dark lines shape perspective out of flat, cool colours and stark white spaces; the result is what some have described as "fantasy realism." Please do not list commemorative posters.
