DEWILDED is an anagram of Ed de Wild (1972), artist and architect based in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Region.
He graduated cum laude from the Utrecht School of the Arts (HKU 1999) and obtained his Master of Architecture degree at the Amsterdam School of the Arts (HKA) 2005.
After decades of working for renowned Amsterdam Architects and interior architects (such as Benthem Crouwel Architects and RAU), he changed course and freed himself from the straitjacket he had grown into.
With a successful exhibition of a first series of reliefs about landscape, archeology and imagination, his new life as an autonomous visual artist started.
Since then his work has shifted further and further from the architectural to the autonomous. It's still characterized by a great presence of structure in space and time, but it also stimulates the imagination, in search of an existential and universal truth.
