Louis M Schmidt was born and raised in rural, central Illinois, which is more a point of curiosity than one of pride, as one doesn’t typically meet too many small town Midwesterners in the “fine” art world. He is currently situated in San Diego, CA (he earned an MFA in Visual Arts from UCSD in 2010) whence he produces a plethora of variously executed drawings, drawing-based installations and publications, whilst running a small gallery called Double Break. This fall, he heads to Japan for the Tokyo Art Book Fair, then to NYC for the NY Art Book Fair at MoMA P.S. 1. Schmidt has exhibited work in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco; his zines have been featured in zine-related exhibitions in Madrid, Budapest and Leipzig, and were included in Behind the Zines: Self-Publishing Culture, published by Gestalten in the Spring of 2011.
