Laurence Gartel (born June 5, 1956) is an American artist. His work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, USA, Joan Whitney Payson Museum, Long Beach Museum of Art, Princeton Art Museum, PS 1, Norton Museum and in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum of American History and the Bibliothèque Nationale. Born and raised in New York City, Gartel had the opportunity to teach Andy Warhol how to use the Amiga Computer, went to School of Visual Arts, with fellow art student, graffiti artist Keith Haring, where he earned his BFA degree majoring in Graphics, and started his electronic career working side by side with Nam June Paik at Media Study/Buffalo in upstate New York. The Palm Beach Photographic Centre Awards Committee and Executive Director’s Office have chosen Laurence Gartel to receive the FotoMentor Award at FotoFusion 2009. The decision has come acknowledging Mr. Gartel’s lifetime achievements pushing photography and image creation to new horizons. As a true pioneer of the digital aesthetic he will be honored at the FotoFusion banquet and will be highlighted as a role model for a new generation. Previous recipients have included Gordon Parks, Sebastio Selgado, Arnold Newman, Ruth Bernhard and Duane Michals. Laurence Gartel is the first Digital Artist to ever receive the Award. His innovative and groundbreaking Digital Art over 30-years sets him apart. Gartel recently had work acquired into the permanent collection of the Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum in London
