Patrick Nagel

Patrick Nagel's art, infamous for gracing nail salons across the globe, was a luxury loft staple for all cocaine culture gents and babes of the 80s. Nagel reached a wide audience regularly illustrating Payboy, but perhaps is best known image for the cover of Duran Duran's album, Rio. Although he used photographs of models and Playboy Playmates during the creation of his iconic images, the resulting illustrated women are strikingly similar. Who is this reappearing form, who is Nagel's anima? 

Nagel died from a heart attack in the mid-1980s directly after an appearance at the American Heart Association's Aerobathon. The aesthetic of his pieces has endured for decades and his work is some of the most recognizable art in history!


Stop by our store for rare framed Nagel posters in a range of mysterious poses!
