Ida Kvetny is a Danish artist born in 1980. Through virtual reality, Kvetny merges the digital with her works in paint and clay thus creating a multimodal visual world. For Kvetny, the subconscious occupies a privileged position, as her intuitive approach to image creation leads to places unreachable by rationality. She holds a BFA from Edinburgh College of Art and an MFA from the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London. Kvetny has been awarded the Royal Scottish Academy Painters Prize, the Maclaine Medal, the Aage and Yelva Nimb Honorary Scholarship, and the Niels Wessel Bagge Art Foundation grant, and she has been shortlisted for the Lumen Prize. She is co-founder of Radar Contemporary and the Danish NFT Art Community.
Recent solo shows by Kvetny include the Round Tower (DK), Politikens Forhal (DK), and Elena Shchukina Gallery (UK). She has participated in exhibitions at the Ystad Museum of Art (SE), Museum of Art at Seoul National University (KR), Torrance Art Museum (US), the Sovereign European Art Prize Exhibition at Somerset House (UK), Leroy Niemann Center (US) Abrons Arts Center (US), VRHAM! (DE), Brandts (DK), ARKEN Museum of Modern Art (DK), Holstebro Kunstmuseum (DK), Kunsthal Charlottenborg (DK), Trapholt Museum (DK), Gl.
