Gala Bell is a London based multidisciplinary artist. Engaging with ideas of value, taste, hierarchy and absurd labour, her work is the aftermath of a reaction to substance and situation. Materials and actions become metonymic, swapping roles between quotidian interactions and traditional art processes.
Bell is a graduate of the Royal College of Art and City and Guilds Art School London. She has been selected for exhibitions with The Victoria and Albert Museum as part of the Great Exhibition Road Festival, The London Design Festival with Mint Gallery, The Design Museum, Kunsthalle am Hamburger Platz in Berlin, and Galerie der HBKsaar in Saarsbrucken. Bell has had commissions by BBC One and Tate and Lyle for her sugar sculptures, with a piece acquired by the Tate and Lyle Museum archive in London. She has been included in publications with Dazed magazine and Art Reveal, with interviews by BBC One Tribe and The Royal Docks, and an interview feature on To The Studio Podcast.
