Photoshop has always been as much a creative program as it has been a production tool. While it is mostly used for photo retouching and printing, there exists a myriad of artistic tools readily available to be implemented. With the new brush sets and capabilities, there are endless drawing and painting potentials that can be explored. Many new tools such as the 3D Module can be integrated into the creative process. Mixing and combining Modes along with exploring pattern and brush creation in both abstract and realistic forms offer the user more possibilities.
LAURENCE GARTEL is considered the “Father” of the Digital Art medium for over 34-years. He has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, Long Beach Museum of Art, Princeton Art Museum, Norton Museum of Art, and in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum of American History, Bibliotheque Nationale, and most recently the Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum in London. Gartel is also the subject of two monographs: Laurence M. Gartel: A Cybernetic Romance” Introduction written by Nam June Paik, and “GARTEL: Arte e Tecnologia”. Dozens of publications include Mr.Gartel as a major figure of the “Art of the Digital Age” shifting the course of discipline.
GARTEL was one of the few artists that gave input to the first version of the software. He was a spokesperson for Adobe when they introduced version 3.0 with layers so many years ago. GARTEL taught Andy Warhol how to use the Amiga Computer as he needed assistance creating Debbie Harry (Blondie’s) album cover. Other celebrities such as Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, have collaborated with GARTEL. Join him at the Palm Beach Photographic Centre for a dynamic learning experience.
