Travis ApelBiography: Growing up outside his birthplace in Moberly, Missouri, Travis Apel's art has been influenced by the physical environment that surrounded him. Throughout grammar school, he strived to create realistic art; however, the illustrations drawn and painted made him feel creatively stale. By comparison, he visited a foundry on a high school field trip which ignited his imagination beyond a creative vacuum of making 2-D art. With his visionary traits and autodidactic approach, sculpture provided therapeutic means to express his ideas. After Travis studied at Kansas City Art Institute, he eventually worked in a gallery and foundry in Atlanta, Georgia. Since 2001, he has worked in Omaha, Nebraska where his work has been featured at the Hot Shops Art Center, Omaha Summer Arts Festival and Art on the Pointe. Additionally, his work has been selected for the Cambridge Art Association National Prize Show and invited to become a member of the New England Sculptors Association. His objects are scheduled for exhibition in the Nebraska Showcase Gallery. Combined with sculpture, Travis has been commissioned to create custom jewelry for several years.
