About Kyle Beal

Kyle Beal (born in Calgary, 1978) holds a diploma from the Alberta College of Art and Design, Calgary (2001) and MFA in visual art from the University of Victoria (2004). Beal’s studio-based inquiry uses traditional media (primarily drawing) along with interactive and electronic sculptural objects to explore ideas related to language, comedy, and interests tied to day-to-day life, from looked-over details to broad generalizations. He has exhibited throughout Canada in solo and group shows, and his works can be found in a number of private and corporate collections. He has participated in residencies at the Vermont Studio Center and the Corbin Union Residency. In 2015 his work was featured in the exhibitions Future Station: 2015 Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art, Art Gallery of Alberta, Edmonton; Electric Park, Douglas Udell Gallery, Edmonton; as well as Roulette, a solo exhibition at Truck Contemporary Art, Calgary. His most recent exhibition was the 2016 solo exhibition Funtown at MULHERIN, Toronto. He is represented by Douglas Udell Gallery.
