I have an absolute obsession with Patrick Nagel’s art, maybe it was being a teenager in the 1980s’ and seeing his (and sadly his knockoffs) work everywhere. Though by the time I was old enough to truly appreciate his work, he was dead in 1984. I love the flat colors and that he can take the same basic idea & turning it into something different each time.
While his art has been imitated many times over (I call them “Fake Nagels”), his style has never be truly duplicated. A true original and that is why he is one of my favorite artists of all time. Thankfully, his work has been duplicated in prints and book form, it is not too difficult to acquire. I am so happy to own four “real” poster prints and they hang in my office.
