Vernissage: 14th of May 2011, Lars Bohman Gallery (Stockholm)
Direct from Young Art, we headed to an opening with world-known artist. Donald Baechler was the man. His unique sculptures are a combination of the childlike and the ancient. He portrays things from every day life, like trees, plants, ice cream cones and balls. The sculptor is naturally engaged to line and form, besides that his main focuses are surface, texture and spatial dimension.

Baechler´s breathtaking biography is probably as good as it gets. Museum of Modern Art, Guggenheim Museum, Whitney Museum in New York, and Musée National d’Art Moderne in Paris are among the places his work has been represented at. He lives and works in New York.
