Greg Hargarten is a Saskatoon based painter, musician 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 all over Canada.

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.”

gregRecent highlights include the aquisition of his works by the Parks Canada Permanent Collection, The Mann Gallery Permanent Collection, as well as the Guy Rutter - Peoples Choice, and the Kayla Memorial Awards from the Mann Art Gallery in Prince Albert. In 2011 he was invited by Parks Canada to take part in their “Art in the Park” program in Ivvavik National Park Yukon.

Hargarten has exhibited in over 20 solo and group shows in Canada and his artwork is held in private, corporate and museum collections including The Mann Gallery in Prince Albert and the Parks Canada Permanent Collections.
