Syahbandi Samat

Syahbandi Samat

Drawing from personal experience and observation, the stupefying technical skills of young artist Muhammad Syahbandi Samat, using primarily ball-point pens, has been gaining wide attention from the Malaysian art scene in recent years, particularly since winning the 2011 cycle of the Malaysian Emerging Artist Award (MEAA), and more recently, the Young Guns Award 2016.

Syahbandi Samat started drawing since the age of four, but he never thought that he would one day make art for a living. As he simply put it, he just liked to draw. It was only when he was commissioned by a local daily to draw seven portraits of children, and got paid a good sum afterwards that he realised he could make money out of this talent.

His keen interest in art began while still in secondary school, experimenting with various mediums before settling on using the ballpoint pen, catalysed by his discovery of artworks by Spanish artist and poet Juan Fransisco Casas. His earlier works were portrayals of myths and fairy tales, through the artist’s own interpretive lens, at times twisted but in a humorous sense. Since then his artistic creations have become more introspective, projecting his concerns and fears into surrealistic viewscapes that are often intriguing at first glance.

Syahbandi takes the ballpoint pen well beyond the implement’s typical role as a writing instrument, fuelled by his determination and hard work, continuously improving his skills as a visual artist, and is definitely a talent to watch in the coming years.

Soni Irawan

Soni Irawan

As an artist with a formal art education and as a musician, (he was one of the founders of Yogyakarta experimental band Seek Six Sick), Soni Irawan has different approach to create his artworks.

His art is greatly influenced by the spirit and energy of rock music, but also his printmaking background, especially in the creation of woodcut prints. His paintings on canvas or wood pieces are filled with spontaneous brush strokes and have sketchy street-art appearance. The subject matters are however largely personal, revolve around his family, his social environment and an effort to capture the spirit of human survival in everyday life.

Rather than painting a depth impression of gradual colour changes or shadows, he uses main and unmixed colours for his objects, that are laid over each other in a free composition. The roughness of the lines of these subjects and forms are inherent to his expressive primitivism woodcut prints. Unlike the relatively more free handpainting, and inherent to the process of the making of woodcut prints, the artist needs not only to think about the image but also how to build up the image using the different wood carved blocks for different colouring etc to achieve the images as an artwork entity.

Agung Kurniawan

Agung Kurniawan

Agung Kurniawan is one of the most important contemporary artists of Indonesia. He is an artist who works with a variety of media. Agung Kurniawan has developed his artistic work within the field of concrete socio-cultural activism; he believes an artist has more and larger social responsibilities than simply producing artistic work. His traditional medium is drawing, but lately he works actively with performance art and videography. Although he works with performance art, he refuses to be called as a performer, and preferred to call himself as the director of the crowds in stead. Both as a studio artist and an art activist, he takes up clear positions and his approach often leads him either down to street level or to intervening in bureaucratic structures.

Agung Kurniawan’s work is reputed to be fairly “coarse” due to themes of violence, controversial politics and taboo subjects. The artist started out with book illustrations, drawings and comics, which offered a harsh, often satirical critique of Indonesian society at that time. With his drawing Happy Victim (1996), depicting people hanging upside down while laughing cheerfully, he won a 1996 Philip Morris Art Award and gained international recognition.

His famous trellis works series started in 2006. The series was inspired by an old family photo album from 1974, consisting of a photo diary of the artist’s mother during the last days of her dying father. Agung tried to recreate the personal as well collective memories by working the panels as a kind of comic book where the trellises are the contours of the figures and the shadows cast the blurred memory.

Agung Kurniawan co-founded “Indonesian Visual Art Archive” (IVAA) and co-owner of Kedai Kebun Forum (KKF) in Yogyakarta. His works are to be found worldwide mostly in museums e.g. Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam, The Netherlands), Van Abbe Museum (Eindhoven, The Netherlands), Singapore Art Museum, as well as in private collection. His recent works include his performance in The Netherlands “Remember Day Parade and after”, during the so-called transHISTORY (Arnhem June 2016) and his video art during the Europalia Festival 2017 (Paleis voor Schone Kunsten / BOZAR / Centre for Fine Art Brussels, Belgium).

Artist Statement 2015 (in Bahasa Indonesia, freely translated)

– Tidak ada yang lebih berharga dari seni, kalau ada itupun pasti palsu (Nothing is more truthful than art, if there is any, then it is false)
– Cinta itu sementara, kesepian itu abadi (Love is temporary, Loneliness is forever)
– Kemiskinan adalah ibu tiri seni kontemporer (Poverty is the stepmother of contemporary art)

Arwin Hidayat

Arwin Hidayat

Arwin Hidayat combines primitive and contemporary motifs for his works on paper and in his paintings, and also by folk art inspired refined unique batik pieces. Although many of his works are inspired by his personal experiences and thoughts, his works of art can be seen as a subtle manner to pose questions about socio-economic and moral situation in Indonesia.

Arwin Hidayat loves the medium batik. It is traditionally a method to decorate cloth with motifs, pattern or designs using colour dyes and wax. It requires quite an elaborate manner of painting (writing) by hand, unlike the modern printed textile production for the mass. Although the method can be found in many places in (South-East) Asia, in Java especially this method of cloth decorating has found its high refinement, where every motive has its own meanings, and whom are allowed to use depending on the gender and even ranks of social and heritage. The traces of these batik paintings can be found in his works on paper.

Arwin Hidayat's artworks have been selected several times for ArtJog, the annual & prestigious contemporary art exhibition in Yogyakarta.

S.E. Dewantoro

S.E. Dewantoro

S.E. (Gepeng) Dewantoro's bizarre drawings and artworks explore and question the relationship of man (human) with his surroundings. A complicated strings of web and thoughts about existence, politics, religion. His depictions of bare flesh and human bodies are intense and some challenge the tough Indonesian censorship.

Though he explores different media and materials, working on paper has his preference. He draws directly and almost instantaneously on the paper, connecting the lines and figures he has meticulously imagined in his head.

Next to a fine-art artist, Gepeng Dewantoro is also a performance and theatre artist in Bandung, Indonesia.

Ida Bagus Putu Purwa

Ida Bagus Putu Purwa

Ida Bagus Putu Purwa's (or shortly Purwa) concept of art works is his continuous search of freedom. His paintings speak about human bodies in a true search and longing for freedom, realizing that human existence or ones' due rights was given to them since birth. Although the subjects in the paintings sometime take different shape or posture, they are in fact an expression of himself. For this reason they are not really different subjects, but merely bodies; embodiments of the same ultimate subject, the very artist himself. His works are expression of this quest to freedom and a reflection of movements and suffering of this urge to find his dream.

Wearing mask or painted face to hide his agony, these bodies move till the edge of the canvas (or paper) as if they are looking to break out of the frame, looking for freedom outside its confined edges. Jumping high or almost disappear to the side while running, trying to break out. Many times they dance with vigorous movements, inspired by the traditional Balinese dance, they pose anger, frustration but also happiness and acceptance. Graceful composition showing vulnerable strength and light-footed postures bear the weigh of his mental burden.

Sometime those bodies stand critically at the edge of an imaginary cliff with unknown depth, though at the same time they do not appear to be suicidal or wanting to leave this world and irresponsibly neglect his burden. They seem to realize that the burden of the limitation of ones body. A struggle for acceptance.  Abounding with heightened emotions and rich cultural traditions, Purwa's stylized figures draw upon the diversity and vibrancy of his background.

Heri Kris

Heri Kris

Heri Kris studied at FSRD ISI Yogyakarta in 1986. He is regarded one of the important contemporary artists in Indonesia. His first solo exhibition outside Indonesia was in Germany in 1994. Heri Kris participated in several group exhibitions such not only in Indonesia but also in Denmark and The Netherlands (by Gallery Lukisan Amsterdam). 
Although his neo-expressionistic boldly coloured works show influences by the (outsider) artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat, they are not necessarily political. The works focus mainly on the visual effects. Unlike the artist Heri Kris himself who is a fierce advocate of individual freedom. 
Nowadays Heri Kris works mainly on canvas and is experimenting with sculpture.
