Laurence Gartel | i |
last name: Gartel
first name: Laurence
birthday: June 5, 1956

Laurence Gartel belongs to the large group of artists who started using computers and programs after the first pioneering years of computer art were over.

He has a record of dozens of participations at shows during the 1980s and later, and appears to be the typical postmodern self-promoter managing, as it is required now, his career.

In 1977, he graduated from the School of Visual Arts, New York. He entered the field of digital art at a time when many young artists were not writing their own programs but instead turned to high-power application software. This kind of artistic production relies on photographs as basic material, and video art as mental framework.
