Gabriel Garbow grew up in the small town of Red Wing, Minnesota. He spent his early years climbing the nearby bluffs and letting his imagination wander. Art studies took him to Brooklyn, New York and Pratt Institute. He was later drawn to the desert mountains of Las Cruces, NM but returned to Minnesota to establish his art career.
Now, the artist calls Sacramento home. Garbow creates his art in watercolor, acrylic and digital and media. His unique style takes cues from contemporary screen prints, pop art, and turn-of-the-century book illustration. With influences including David Hockney, Douglas Simonson, Egon Scheile, and Marc Silvestri, Garbow’s own work moves between the poles of high and low art. His work is known for conveying a sense of peace, energy, playfulness, and intimacy. Recent series have focused on male nudes outdoors and couples in more domestic settings.
