An artist with eclectic tastes, a great traveller and with a history of many exhibitions, his work in painting, sculpture and engraving can be labelled as a postmodern figuration.  In working against the mainstream, in the years 60 and 70, he followed  an  abstract and informalist path.  Nagel addresses mostly social issues with some sarcasm and irreverence, in a style that at times echoes the New Madrid figuration and also adopted influences of pop art (in colourful and urban themes), surrealism (with shocking and humorous approaches) and Povera art ( using humble materials and wastes).
