Donald Baechler Biography

Hartford, Connecticut (USA) 1956

Celebrated American artist Donald Baechler is increasing recognized as a powerful presence in the contemporary art world. His paintings are rendered with a conscious sense of naivite which combine a childish innocence with a stealth sophistication. His trademark surfaces are thick and intensely worked. Critics have stated his work "places him in the painterly tribe of Twombly, Ryman, Rauschenberg and Schwitters."

Baechler studied at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore,Cooper Union in New York, and the Staatliche Hochschule fuer Bildende Kuenste in Frankfurt, Germany.
