October Artist Of The Month: Gabriel Böhmer
Originally from Zurich, Gabriel Böhmer says he spends a lot of time listening to the random thoughts that cross one’s mind. Convinced that the subconscious has a worthwhile narrative, he documents his sometimes tragic, often humorous, and always absurd reflections on dreams, ponderous moments, and the mundane. His influences lie in impressionist, surrealist, and contemporary painters, but he also draws inspiration from music and writing.
After leaving Boston, and the financial services industry, in 2011, he moved to Buenos Aires for two years, and began dedicating himself to painting, writing, and film. When not in the studio, Gabriel can be seen singing growly songs around his current hometown of Edinburgh.
