Nick Kuder

b. 1981

 

The son of a designer and calligrapher, Kuder studied at Rhode Island School of Design, where he did an independent study in printmaking under the modernist American painter and printmaker, Walter Feldman at Brown University.

 

He received his Master of Fine Arts degree from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2009. 

During his time at Cranbrook, Kuder worked as a studio assistant for the renowned abstract painter, Beverly Fishman.

 

His varied digital work often centers around system-generating-systems and procedural methods. Informed by his background in typography and graphic design, Kuder's process and the resulting work are equal parts Apollonian and Dionysian. Simultaneously structured and intuitive; a result of rigorous play. 

 

Kuder’s early 2019 work with ring-based glyphs is widely recognized to have provided the aesthetic inspiration for some of today’s most prominent generative NFT art. 

 

He currently lives and works in Michigan where he is an Associate Professor of Design at an esteemed Midwestern university. He previously taught in the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University; where he served on the graduate faculty for the Electronic Integrated Arts program.
