Biography / EKTA

Daniel Götesson also known as EKTA, is a Swedish artist, currently based in Gothenburg. He is also an animator, sculptor, designer and illustrator. His focus as an artist is places geometrical figures and shapes in an order that feels right for him. EKTA’s works can be found on their collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/12 in 2017.

Daniel’s creative background is deeply rooted in skateboarding and graffiti. These settings still bring inspiration to his work. He had done some illustrations for New York Times. Collage, print drawing and tape work for sketchbooks layered for a design studio but also got involved in fashion. He has collaborated on a capsule collection with the fashion brand Marni. EKTA’s artworks have been exhibited all over Europe and his murals stand proudly across the continent. He tries to work with various mediums and follows his instinct when it comes to creating his art. Majority of his work is personal and short. This aspect restricts him for warring what others might think of this art. His process is about limitations, order, balance and self-sabotage.
