It is with deep sadness that we announce that our graduate and former colleague Erik Binder left us on June 9, 2023 at the age of 49.
Erik Binder was one of the prominent figures on the Slovak art scene. He was born in 1974 in Hnúšťa-Likier. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava in the studio of Professor Róbert Jančovič, Professor Daniel Fischer and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague under assoc. professor Vladimír Kokolia. The scope of his work ranged from painting, object, installation, to video and performance. He exhibited at individual and group exhibitions not only at home, but also abroad. His works can be found in Slovak as well as other international collections.
In addition to his studies, Erik Binder also worked at the AFAD as a teacher - from 2002 to 2004 as an assistant at the Department of Painting, later in 2008 as an external teacher.
