Graduated from Fine Arts Department, Indonesian Institute of The Arts, Yogyakarta (2009). He derives a lot of imagery from comics, cartoons, and pop culture – but he combines and transmutes these sources into something much more strange, complex and witty. His drawings are the seedbed of his work from which all his other media generates. Although there is apparently little overt political reference in these drawings – or in his paintings or sculptural objects – his work offers a caustic commentary on life for his generation: a post-boom art world, a need to find goals and purposes, worries about body identity, having fun. But always these serious themes are treated with deceptive lightness of touch – with his contagious sense of humour and his deft use of line and shade. He is also one of the founders of Ace House Collective, a young artists’ collective and initiative space based in Yogyakarta.
