Agus Prasetyo

Agus Prasetyo's artworks are an interesting mix of different media. Paintings of wood block prints, mixed media (textile, paper) on canvas.

Although Agus Prasetyo creates paintings nowadays, he used to make woodblock prints. Wood-block printing is an ancient method to produce repetitive motifs or text on paper or textiles. This method were used to make hand-printed batik, until the stamps were replaced by brass and other metals to make them more durable and allowing more details.

In his new works Agus Prasetyo recycles in a way his old works, or more specifically fragments of his older woodblock print works, with pieces of different kind of textiles, threads and paper, finished by lines drawn by him with drawing or marker pen.
The paintings are compound of interesting, abstract and colourful blobs, sometimes in the shapes of living organisms or even daily objects.
