Eduard Angeli was born on the 15th of July 1942 in Vienna.
He studied painting and art education under Robin Christian Andersen at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. In 1965 he moved to Istanbul, where he accepted a job as a guest professor of painting at the State Academy. In the next years Angeli experimented with different techniques. Out of synthetic resin, tempera, charcoal, graphite, and watercolor - often also mixtures, he created his work on paper. He chose precise titles for his works and pushed parts of the paintings into the picture field creating a backdrop. In 1971 he returned to Vienna with his wife, the painter Aylin Tektaş, and his two children.
In his paintings Angeli developed new geometric principles. Horizontal and vertical beams and bars become the supporting framework of the picture surface. The colors become more restrained and details such as a piece of cloth set movement accents within the static forms. Eduard Angeli is represented in numerous museums and exhibitions, such as in the Wien Museum, in the Museum of the 20th Century, the Rupertinum Salzburg, but also in other German-speaking countries.
