Greg Hargarten is a Saskatoon based painter, musician, filmaker and graphic artist.

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

He is self taught as a painter, and influenced by the French Impressionists and other artists such 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.

Marsha Day of the Star-Phoenix writes “Greg Hargarten, brings a kind of cerebral vitality to the canvas, along with a fearlessness uncommon to the nascent years of a painter’s career. His fluid grasp of the medium and natural instinct to go to the heart of the matter (his heart), both nourishes and dramatizes the dappled northern woods light.”


In 2013 his painting career and film-making collided. 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 Hargarten’s artistic journey and the expeditions of the Men Who Paint as they explore various remote regions. There are currently almost sixty episodes of “Adventures in Painting,” with more added monthly.

Recent highlights include the aquisition of his works by the Kunstmuseum in Schwann Germany, Parks Canada Permanent Collection, as well as the Guy Rutter - Peoples Choice, and the Kayla Memorial Awards from the Mann Art Gallery in Prince Albert. In 2018 he, along with the Men Who Paint collective was invited to be the artist in residence at The Kunstmuseum in Schwann, Germany. In 2020 the "Adventures in Painting" web series was nominated for a Saskatchewan Independent Film Award.

Hargarten has exhibited in over 40 solo and group shows in Canada and abroad, and his artwork is held in private, corporate and museum collections including The Kunstmuseum in Schwann Germany, The Mann Gallery in Prince Albert and the Parks Canada Permanent Collections.
