Friedrich Nagler (1920 – 2009) was an émigré, ‘outsider’ artist born in Vienna, Austria. He escaped Nazi occupation in 1938 and eventually settled in Hampshire, England. He always considered himself an artist and dedicated his life to producing a prodigious artistic output, working with a very wide range of materials. He also kept a record of his thoughts in the form of 42 books of poetry.
He refused to either sign his work or exhibit during his lifetime, but posthumously his work has been exhibited at the England Gallery, London; Paul Smith shops in London and Tokyo, the Zetter Hotel in London, Pallant House gallery in Chichester, Hove Museum and is one of 14 artists featured in the Outside In virtual gallery Layer of Creativity curated by Jo Baring.
