INFO

Patrick Hartl was born in 1976. Today, he lives and works in Munich as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator. He has been involved in art and design for over 15 years, and his works have been displayed in various cities, including San Francisco, Fresno, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Offenbach, Munich, and Augsburg.

Starting with graffiti, his path led him across a multitude of experiments, including mainly illustration, calligraphy, and digital compositing.

Hartl prefers handcrafted designs and, due to their honesty, non-computerized analog works. Yet the possibilities offered by digital design are undoubtedly very tempting and therefore can't be rejected completely. Currently, the biggest attraction for Hartl lies in the combination of both techniques, allowing him to use each technique's advantages — and thus interlinking the old with the new.
