“Everyone should own a Beezy Bailey.” —David Bowie
Beezy Bailey is a South African artist who works in a wide range of media, including painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking and ceramics.
Beezy Bailey aspires to create art as a balm for a mad world—a corrective for our most lamentable human qualities, including a planet brutalized by extremes. Many of his works emanate from his concern with the Anthropocene, the present epoch characterized as the time in which humans began to substantially alter Earth’s surface, atmosphere, oceans, and ecosystems.
