Richard Pantell grew up in New York City’s northern borough of The Bronx. During those formative years, he became acquainted with the masterworks in the city’s art museums and galleries. It was also at this time that the imagery of the city’s architecture, subways, billboards, and street life found its way into his earliest drawings and paintings.
Pantell Studied art at the University of Bridgeport (Connecticut), The Art Students League of New York, and is largely self-taught. He moved to the art colony of Woodstock, NY in 1977.
The paintings and prints of Richard Pantell can be found in such collections as the Butler Institute of American Art, The Museum of the City of New York, The British Museum, and the Jewish Museum in Stockholm, Sweden. He has won awards at exhibitions at The National Academy, Allied Artists of America, and many others. Articles about his work have appeared in American Artist Magazine and The Journal of the Print World; and he has had work reproduced in The New York Times and The Christian Science Monitor.
Pantell has been teaching at The Art Students League of New York since 1996.
