Patrick Nagel has long deserved his place as one of the greatest artists from the beginning of the ‘80s, a period when Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Tom Wesselmann and Andy Warhol set the artistic landscape. And while the name Patrick Nagel is lesser known, the images that he created between the end of the 1970’s up to the mid-1980’s have been imprinted upon our collective memory, and he may rightly be counted as one of the most influential artists of this period.
The book is divided into four large parts. The drawings, Board paintings, Ink drawings and Canvas paintings. Intertwined between these parts are interviews, anekdotes and quotes about his life. The book is colourful and printed on high-end paper. The cover of the book is adorned with experimental slanted type, impressed with hotfoil. This same design returns in a hot pink on the endpapers of the book. The book was printed in a limited edition of 500 copies for Samuel Vanhoegaerden Gallery.
