NICOLÁS BEDEL

(Buenos Aires, Argentina 1974)

Painting has been part of his life since he has memory. He achieved an Architecture degree by the University of Buenos Aires and he also was a painting professor. In 2004, he was cofounded the group “Orgánico”, a collective integrated by multidisciplinary artists that included the legendary Clorindo Testa, with whom he exposed at Centro Cultural Recoleta. Since 2005, Bedel splits his time between Buenos Aires and Uruguay, where he spends months researching and developing his artworks. There, he carries out individual and group exhibitions in different spaces. His work has become part of important national and international collections.
In 2009 he had an individual show in the Arroyo 872 space, in Buenos Aires. In 2011 he presented his individual exhibition Micromegas y Macrogemas at Galería Dabbah Torrejón, and the group exhibition Pups [Cachorros] at Galería Miau Miau, both in his home city. That same year, he was commissioned a mural for a private collection in Uruguay. In early 2012 he traveled to Mexico to paint a mural and in November 2012, he opened A un millón de años luz de casa [A million light years from home] at Galería Machete in collaboration with the artist Ivana Brenner. Tonta Luz [Silly Light] was inaugurated in June 2013 at Slyzmud, Buenos Aires, Argentina; and in February 2014 he opened his second exhibition, Atramentaria, at Galería Machete, Mexico City.
