Elleuk – “The Route Less Traveled”PRESS

Sascha Bailey has been involved in the art world for a number years, since leaving school at 16. His latest exhibition, The Route Less Travelled, had its private view this week.

Son to David Bailey, it comes as no surprise that Sascha’s taste in art work is cultivated and creative. The Route Less Travelled explores the idea that formal qualifications are not necessary when it comes to art and the creative process; that a valid and insightful expression can be made regardless of educational background. The seven artists Sascha selected to show – among them Sascha’s brother Fenton Bailey, and Damien Hirst‘s son Connor Hirst – have all forged their own paths.

‘They are a combination of people I have met though working at art galleries,’ Sascha told us.
‘Some I’ve known all my life and others, I reached out to for this show. I chose them because they all didn’t finish higher education – and for their unique style and passion. I really wanted to create a launching pad for my creative friends and then it blossomed into this.

The Something Else Collective – which consists of me, Conor Bond and Lily Bloom – have plans for many more shows. I think this is just the tip of iceberg.’

We’ll be watching this space – and, in the meantime, we suggest you giveThe Route Less Travelled a look. Situated in a pop up space in Covent garden, it features a mix of photography, sculpture, and painting.

The Route Less Travelled, curated by Sascha Bailey, is at 17 Floral Street, Covent Garden, London WC2E 9DH from 1 May to 19 May 2014.
