Greg Hargarten

  • Biography

    Greg Hargarten began painting and drawing at an early age, it was in 2005, when Greg began to paint seriously. As a founding member of the “Men Who Paint” group, he has since painted across Canada and abroad.

    He is self taught as a painter, and influenced by the French Impressionists as well as Canada’s Tom Thompson, J. E. H. MacDonald, Aurthur Lismer and A.J. Casson.

    Hargarten’s paintings are an expression of his perception of nature, rather than exact representations. Using strong deliberate strokes and bold colors, he paints a variety of subject matter, but is mostly recognized for his urban and traditional landscapes.

    In 2013 he filmed, edited, and narrated “Halfway To Heaven,” a 30 minute documentary of the Men Who Paint’s expedition to the Yukon, which aired on Shaw Television. This led to the “Adventures in Painting” web series which follows Hargarten’s artistic journey and the expeditions of the Men Who Paint as they explore and paint at remote regions in Canada. There are currently over sixty episodes of “Adventures in Painting.”

    Hargarten has exhibited in over 50 solo and group shows in Canada and abroad. His artwork is held in private, corporate and museum collections including The Kunstmuseum in Schwann Germany, The OstseeSparkasse Rostock Permanent Collection, The EnergoAtom Permanent Collection in Ukraine, The Parks Canada Permanent Collection, Ronald McDonald House Permanent Collection, the Concorde Group Permanent Collection, and the Mann Gallery in Prince Albert.
