Fendry Ekel was trained at the Gerrit T. Rietveld Academy, the esteemed Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam, Netherlands and Cittadellarte, Fondazione Pistoletto, Italy. As an outcome of his solo exhibition in HVCCA in New York, he was invited to participate in the International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP), New York in 2011. Ekel has been dubbed a pictor doctus, who critically investigates the power of art, figuration and representation by appropriating images from our collective memory. His multilayered, monumental paintings, created after existing photographic pictures, explore the relation between ‘man and memory’. Fendry Ekel has exhibited his work internationally and has had reoccurring solo shows in Amsterdam, Brussels, Milan, Valencia, Mexico City, Jakarta and New York. Ekel lives and works in Bali, Indonesia and Berlin, Germany. 2021 he established the artists-run Artspace V-room together with Marco Cassani.
