Gallery Nomad will show the works of the English artist BAEL in the solo show "SHE" in Berlin. To learn more about the artist and his background we asked him some questions.
Nomad: You are a self-taught artist. Was it difficult to advance your career without a classic art education? Please tell me why you decided to work as an artist.
BAEL: Drawing was my escape as a child, I was extremely shy, and so the praise I received for my drawings started my love of art and my determination to create. After I left school at 16, I briefly attended Art College for 2 years (dropping out twice), but I never progressed to university. The reason I was disappointed with Art College, was because they did not teach even basic techniques of drawing or painting. So I believe that my style is a direct result of teaching myself.
In 2009, I decided to start sending my work to galleries for consideration. I must have sent hundreds of emails over the years and did not receive any responses. Eventually, I was contacted by Signal Gallery in London, they took me on when I was a completely unknown artist from the North of England, with no real art education. They showed one of my works in a group show and the piece had a lot of interest and sold quickly, they eventually gave me 3 solo exhibitions in the 4 years I was represented by them.
