Eugen Feller was born on 26 January 1942 in Split, but living in Zagreb since 1945, where his family was from. He is a self-taught artist, who first grew an interest in painting as a boy.

Working on his cycle Malampije, of paintings of uneven surfaces and monochromatic structures, in the early 1960s he made a name for himself as one of the most radical representatives of Art Informel in contemporary Croatian painting. Later he embraced minimalism and primary abstraction. He lived in Italy (Sestri Levante by Genova) between 1969 and 2000. Painting, drawing, print and objects are his media. In 2014 Croatian Television made a tv documentary Contemporaries - Eugen Feller. His works can be found in dozens of museums, galleries and private collections in Croatia and abroad. He has received several awards, including the Vladimir Nazor Life Achievement Award in 2017. He lives and works in Zagreb.
