Tom Bailey

Bailey Tom Bailey is an artist and filmmaker. After cut his creative teeth in painting,
and household DIY, he began to make experimental short films that increasingly use
the apparatus of narrative cinema. Bailey’s films are often trying to express elusive
feelings and ideas about ourselves, and the world, which are difficult to capture in
words alone. His work so far has often been constructed around environment and
internal processes.

recent projects from the Roundhouse (Camden) and IdeasTap for his soon to be
finished short: ‘Street Spirit’.
