Donald Baechler is an American artist. He was born in 1956 in Hartford, Connecticut. Baechler attended the Maryland Institute College of Art from 1974–77, and Cooper Union from 1977–78. He proceeded to the Staatliche Hochschule fuer Bildende Künste Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main, Germany after meeting several young German artists at the time who left an impression on Baechler with their fresh sense of talent and energy. Baechler returned to New York City in 1980, where he was soon a part of a burgeoning Lower Manhattan arts scene, showing in the East Village and exhibition spaces such as Artists Space and The Drawing Center. Baechler and Tony Shafrazi struck up an acquaintance over a shared interest in artist Joseph Kosuth. Shafrazi founded a downtown gallery that represented Baechler, Keith Haring, Kenny Scharf and eventually Jean-Michel Basquiat. Baechler’s early work was noted for childlike imagery and thematics—associations which have recurred throughout his career. Baechler’s source material draws broadly on classical art history, the New York School, contemporary art, folk art, outsider art, pop culture and childhood. The artist cites Cy Twombly and Giotto as his primary influences. He has had recent solo exhibitions at Cheim & Read, NY, The Kunsthalle Merano, Italy and The Museum der Moderne, Rupertinum, Salzburg. Baechler’s works are included in numerous public collections including The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, NY, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and The Centre George Pompidou, Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris among other institutions worldwide.
