Gabriel Schmitz

Gabriel Schmitz was born in Dortmund, Germany in 1970. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Painting from the Edinburgh College of Art, during which he spent some time at the University of Salamanca as part of the Erasmus programme. He then proceeded to obtain a Master of Arts in European Fine Art from the prestigious Winchester School of Art.

Gabriel’s strong expressionistic portrait drawings have a strong European sensibility, even though his subjects are typically Asian and African in ethnicity. The anonymity of the persons in his works allows the viewer to interpret each figure through the subjectivity of their own lenses. He has lived and worked in Barcelona since 1995.
