About Leo Bugel
Doctors were speechless when Leo Bugel was born in Oneonta, New York. Probably due to the fact that when he left his mother’s womb he had a paintbrush in one hand and an easel in the other while wearing one of those French hats and a scarf.
After miraculously surviving the horrifying weather conditions and the mundane rural life of upstate New York for 18 years, he moved to San Francisco in 2005 to study at the Academy of Art University. He received his BFA in Painting in the spring of 2011. He is currently “painting his ass off” full-time.
Bugel is not sure exactly what year he will die yet but hopes that when he does, he doesn’t end up being “one of those artists who was poor their whole life and then ends up famous after they die.”
