of the week: aurel schmidt (artist)

Aurel Schmidt from British Columbia, decided to move to New York in the years 2005. She worked several jobs but kept on drawing on the side and eventually got noticed by Dakis Joannou (a European collector) and was suddenly in the art industry. Schmidt, 25 now has a line of tees at Opening Ceremony and has very successful solo shows. She worked really hard at it and it got her to something she once only fantasized of.
