David Baboila is a working artist born and based in St. Paul, MN. Baboila is currently seeking his BA in Studio Arts from Augsburg University in Minneapolis. Working primarily in the medium of photography, he explores themes of transition and vacancy whether they appear emotionally in intimate work or physically in his documentary style work. Learning this field of study in school and from his community of photographers, Baboila’s practice takes shape formally and in less traditional methods through work across many media and through general experimentation regarding the concept and subject. Outside of school he is interning with photographer Alec Soth while learning how to make a living as a working artist. Baboila exhibits his photographs locally and is currently making work for upcoming exhibitions.
Currently I am working on putting together my senior show for Augsburg. Comprised of photography and a small installation my show (title pending) will be up in Augsburg Christensen Center Student Gallery from February 4th–15th. There will be a closing recpetion on the 15th from 5:30–7:30 so please stop by.
