"From New York, now living in Ireland, I paint and draw in abstract and neo-expressionist styles with mixed media, including oil, acrylic, oil stick and charcoal. I believe in art for art's sake with the veracity of spontaneity. Only with the viewer, we together capture the transcendent power of art."
Hartel has exhibited and enjoyed representation by art galleries in New York City, Los Angeles, Dublin, Milan, Barcelona, and Madrid, with works currently in residence at Green Gallery, Dublin, Ireland. His work has been sold and auctioned for private collectors, as well as gifted for charitable organisations, in the U.S., Europe and Australia. Hartel is featured in many art publications, magazines, cover art, and online galleries.
