Gabriel Garbow is an artist living and working in St. Paul, MN. He is president of the Old Town Artists co-op, which resides just across the river from the historic Lowertown arts community.
Gabriel is an art-school dropout, having attended a number of semesters at Pratt Institute and one at the Minneapolis College of Art & Design. He graduated with a degree in English (and a minor in studio art) from New Mexico State University after a mere decade of college.
With influences ranging from comic book illustration to the the finest museum pieces, Gabriel’s own work moves between the poles of high and low art. Current series have tended toward vaguely fantastic scenes in watercolor, and more whimsical works created in Photoshop.
“My number one aim is to engage with people’s imaginations. “
Gabriel is also a former art camp brat, having logged countless summer weeks at Interlochen Arts Camp, Savannah College of Art and Design, and the University of Minnesota.
Gratitude goes out to the extraordinary opportunities he has benefited from over the years. He would like to thank all of the people who made this possible: the art teachers, the scholarship contributors, and especially his unflinchingly supportive family. “Special thanks to my mother and devoted partner, Tony, for sticking with me; and to Peg Hansen – one exceptional public school art teacher.” – Gabriel Garbow
