Adam de Boer has been travelling throughout Indonesia to investigate his Eurasian heritage for the past ten years. His recent work employs imagery and traditional crafts from the region to connect his artistic practice with those of his distinct cultural forebears.
De Boer graduated with a BA in Painting from the College of Creative Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2006, and an MA in Fine Art from the Chelsea College of Art, London in 2012. In 2017, de Boer was awarded a Fulbright research fellowship to Indonesia, alongside grants from the Joan Mitchell Foundation, Arts for India, The Cultural Development Corporation, DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, and The Santa Barbara Arts Fund.
His recent exhibitions include Gazelli Art House, London, The Hole, New York, and Gajah Gallery in 2021, ISA Art + Design, Jakarta in 2020; Hunter Shaw Fine Art, Los Angeles in 2020/2018; Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, London in 2020; World Trade Centre, Jakarta 2018; and Art|Jog, Yogyakarta 2018/2015.
