ABI Profile: Oliver Riley
is studying at the Birmingham School of Art in the UK.
His summer internship was with artist Ignacio Uriarte in Berlin.
“In the beginning I was confused about what I can do as a young person in the arts. Generally, it is quite difficult to get an internship or even to do a work experience. Nothing’s guaranteed. I’m very grateful to have been given experience with ABI.”
“I think the ABI coaching is important because I felt like I wasn’t alone. They were just a phone call away and they would assist you, whether it’s a quick question, housing, or checking your portfolio.”
“I think I’ve grown in the sense that I’ve been able to challenge myself to keep going. I’ve been able to learn that it’s the end result that we are after.”
