About the Artist:
Laurence Gartel is a pioneer in the field of computer art. In the 1970s, he produced some of the first examples of electronic art using tools he had built and modified himself. At the age of twenty-nine he had learned 42 different electronic systems for creating art. Combining actual painting and photo-manipulation, he produced a unique art form a decade before corporate-produced software allowed the general public to emulate his technique. He started working with video synthesizers in 1976, ten years before the introduction of Paintbox to painters, and Amiga. Gartel is unique for having entered the paintbox style of work so early, and having persisted through the evolution of this technology to the present day.
