SHOWS Dangerous CurvesBorn 1980 in San Francisco, California, Aaron Nagel began drawing as a child and gradually made his way to painting. Upon discovering oils in his early twenties, he became enamored with the medium and has been obsessed ever since. Although he has had no formal training, he continues to relentlessly pursue a mastery of figurative surrealism from his home in Oakland, CA. Nagels' work explores the potential to create a new sort of iconography for the non-believer, with subtle commentary on the trappings of organized religion and theism.
