Urmas Pedanik was born in 1949 in Pärnu. In 1974–1980 he studied industrial art at the State Art Institute. His first solo exhibition took place in 1981 at the Art Hall Gallery, with his second in 2010 at the City Gallery. The current exhibition at the City Gallery is his sixth solo show. A catalogue documenting Urmas Pedanik´s recent work, with text written by Tamara Luuk will be published. Two catalogues have been published previously: in 2011 to accompany his solo exhibition at Hobusepea Gallery (text by Kädi Talvoja) and in 2018 for a solo exhibition at Draakoni Gallery (text by Andreas Trossek).
