Handiedan (SPRANG-CAPELLE, NL, 1981)
Amsterdam, Netherlands

The art of Dutch artist Handiedan involves a complex cut and paste mixture of digital and highly detailed sculptural hand cut collages, complimented with augmented reality and conscientiously collected antique ornamental frames.

Handiedan’s accomplished and refined mixed media techniques allows her for an artistic journey through past, present and future. The result is an almost kaleidoscopical visual exploration whose discoveries are sometimes immediately visible and sometimes hidden in plain sight.


With a background in photographic design (graduated), illustration and graphic design (self taught) from 2002-2007, Handiedan started working as a full-time mixed media artist in 2007.


Ever since, her artwork has been shown in galleries and museums throughout the world as well outside the gallery as large scale wheat paste installations.

Museum exhibitions at Halle Saint Pierre with HEY!, Muca Museum in Munich and Urban Nation Museum in Berlin with Yasha Young Projects.
