Dede Bandaid (Israel -)


Dede Bandaid (Born in Israel).
Lives and works in Tel Aviv, Israel.

Dede Bandaid is an Israeli artist who has been working in the public sphere since 2006. His works can be viewed at galleries, exhibition spaces, various art events and mostly in the streets of art capitals around the world, such as London, New York, Berlin and Tel Aviv.

Dede conducts his way as an urban tourist, wandering the ever-changing city streets and visually reacting to them. The urban landscape, together with the social and the personal questions it evokes are the main drives behind Dede’s work. In his works, Dede examines and questions the man-made urban lifestyle people create for themselves, as he reflects on absurd, paradoxical human existence. His body of works concerns problems and mental phenomena shared by all the individuals of the urban society. He deals with loneliness, with the inability to align in the assembly line or to integrate in the group, and with the constant need to move forward to new territories, to run away to new places, both physical and mental ones.

Inspiration arises anywhere and everywhere, in the architecture, rhythms, sounds, and passersby who create the city’s pulse. His inspiration is depending on faith and on state of mind, always unpredictable, impulsive and dynamic. Dede uses various techniques and different tools each time; since the ideas leading him arise from within the experience of the hectic urban life, every question requires a new and fresh approach. His works are always site-specific, both in the theoretical and the practical aspects: they facilitate a solid relationship between the concept that generates them, the specific location where they appear, and the materials and methods used to create them. Therefore Dede considers the streets to be the ultimate space for creation, the most fitting and true platform for communication of messages, and self-expression.

The city is an integral part of Dede’s creative process, as well as of the final work. Dede is motivated by the deep need to leave something after him, by the need to be meaningful and to gain meaning: his art is, for all intents and purposes, a statement of existence.
