Fadenka van der Sloot (born 1993 in San Esteban, Argentina) is a multidisciplinary visual artist based in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

After studying Graphic Design for two years, Fadenka changed the direction to the Fine Arts department of the University of the Arts Utrecht (HKU) and graduated in 2018. From a poetic, as well as a humorous point of view, Fadenka tries to shape her life in an artistic way. As a mixed media artist she transforms her personal experiences, and her fascination for daily life, to socially – and sometimes politically – related works of art; even though this isn’t always the aim of the works.
