Erik Bendix is a London based artist born in Lusaska, Zambia, in 1975. He studied painting and philosophy in Denmark before taking up an MFA course in Art Practice at the prestigious Goldsmiths College. Taking cartoon inspired figures as his subjects, he translates these ubiquitous products of popular culture into ambiguous, complex works. In refuting a clear meaning and interpretation his paintings offer the viewer boundless interpretations. Erik won the Jealous Print Prize in 2010 and has featured in numerous exhibitions including the London Art Fair (2011); The Affordable Art Fair, London (2010); 'Harsh Lines and Spongy Surfaces', Hackney Wicked Festival, London (2010); 'Pause and Eject 2', The Rag Factory, London; The Fall Exhibition, Den Frie Exhibition Space, Copenhagen (2005 & 2004).
