Originally from Estonia, via Sweden, Enda Bardell is a Canadian Artist living and working in Vancouver. Always the explorer, Enda’s inquisitiveness has taken her through many stimulating creative careers such costume designer in the motion picture industry, fabric artist and founder of Enda B. Fashion Limited.
Enda has studied at Vancouver Art School (ECUAD) and completed studio courses and workshops with prominent Canadian artists such as Toni Onley and Joan Balzar, both of whom she considers her mentors. As an experimental artist, she is constantly seeking new avenues of expression with patterns of interplay in colours. Her hard-edge abstract work in acrylics is about exploring the relationship between simple shapes with elements of pure colour to create a dynamic impact.
Enda has exhibited her work in numerous group and solo exhibitions locally and internationally. One of Enda’s early abstracts from the Estonian Art in Exile exhibition is now in the historic permanent collection in KUMU, the National Museum of Art in Tallinn, Estonia. Another is in the Tartu Art Museum.
