Born and raised in Nassau, The Bahamas, Schmid began a formal art education at The College of The Bahamas in 2010, graduating with a BFA in Film/Video + Integrated Media at Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver, British Columbia in 2016. Schmid’s installations, incorporating elements of drawing, digital printing, collage, sound and video, utilises aesthetic and conceptual juxtapositions to morph personal narratives into allegories that encompass themes of nostalgia, hyper-masculinity, anthropomorphism, religion, science, the abject and in turn, their oppositions. His work has been exhibited in several galleries throughout New Providence including The Central Bank of The Bahamas and The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas and internationally at Galerie Ernst Hilger in Vienna, Austria. Schmid is currently pursuing a MFA in Studio Art at Ontario College of Art and Design University and is based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
