This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Theodore T. Gall began his career in the arts in the mid-sixties as an animator for teaching films and continued to broaden his skills as a graphic designer. Gall has worked in metal since his early days as an artist. Although his work has not been limited to the human form, it has been his primary focus throughout his career. His compelling figures are most often placed in thought-provoking situations.

He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and the American Academy of Art and has shared his expertise with students at the Clay People in Chicago, The Northshore Art League in Winnetka, Illinois, and the Ojai Art Center in Ojai, California. Gall has exhibited and garnered awards throughout the country and is acquiring a burgeoning international clientele.

REVIEWS
"This exhibition highlights recent, small-scale bronze and stainless steel works by Ojai artist, Ted Gall, whose career has national repute. His sculpted figures and heads are not only a tribute to his technical expertise in the lost wax casting process and patination, but also a tribute to his keen psychological insight and ability to engage through wit and punning twists."   Carnegie Museum
Oxnard, California

"It's much more interesting and powerful than other metal sculptures being developed here and nationally because of that personal point of view. His whole scope and his facility with style, symbolism, and metaphor is unique."   Gerd Koch, Artist and Curator at the Studio Channel Islands Art Center, Cal State, Channel Islands

"His imagination is limitless, and he puts it down in physical form. You walk through his studio and see his themes are so universal. I look at it and say, hey that's me." Donna Granata, Executive Director, Focus on the Masters

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Showing an early aptitude for art, Ted Gall's mother enrolled him in Saturday classes at the Art Institute of Chicago. Only eleven years old he rode the train to class by himself every Saturday, never missing a session.

In high school his counselors steered him towards an industrial arts curriculum, the first of many experiences which would help define the artist. In industrial arts Gall learned to weld, work with power tools and think in three dimension. After high school Gall worked at an animation studio in Chicago, starting off as a gopher and eventually being hired as an animator. Gall loved the work, but left it to join the Marines and serve in the Vietnam War.

Gall then married and took a job in the graphic design division of a printing company. Unsatisfied with the job, Gall signed up for night classes at the Art Institute where he studied sculpture and pursued a bachelor's degree.

A friend of Gall's told him about an automobile parts manufacturer in Skokie, Illinois who was starting an artist-in-residence program. Gall applied and got the position in which he could use the company scarps to create art. Gall stayed with the company, Fel-Pro for 20 years. His job grew to include graphic design and corporate identity work.

In the late 1980s Gall and his wife decided to move to Southern California. In California his artwork and own style developed. He began making more sophisticated figures and heads which he then decorated with accent pieces which defined the sculpture.

Ted Gall continues to experiment and grow with his art from his home and studio in Ojai, California.
