Martin Eder (born August 31, 1968 in Augsburg) is a German artist.

From 1986 until 1992, he studied at the Augsburg University of Applied Sciences, and from 1993 until 1995 continued his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts Nuremberg, attending the University of Kassel in 1995 and 1996. From 1996 until 1999 he studied under Eberhard Bosslet at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts and was a master student under Professor Bosslet from 1991 until 2001. Eder lives and works in Berlin and is represented by Eigen + Art Gallery and Hauser & Wirth.[1][2]

Works[edit]

Martin Eder paints representative Idylls in oil. Recurring motifs are often house pets such as cats, rabbits, poodles or birds, as well as lasciviously semi-clad women's or girls' bodies (Lolita motifs). These naive-kitschy views often conceal details which can irritate the viewers and are intended to lead them to further reflection. The paintings avail themselves of the motifs of postmodern trash, the erotic and Surrealism. They show a contrast between realistically beautiful motifs and their bombastic, surreal antithesis. Martin Eder's works had been primarily embraced outside of Germany, where he has had numerous successful exhibitions, before receiving widespread notice in his native land. Today Martin Eder is counted among the most important German contemporary artists.[3][4]

In addition, Eder plays in his own experimental rock band under the name Richard Ruin et Les Demoniaques. [5]
