A bit about yourself/background information?
I was raised in a loving family in Jakarta.
What’s your average day like?
I wake up around 7, watering the plant, fixed breakfast, and go to my daily office. Later at night I gamble with my housemate.
What is it that your work communicates? What are some specific messages you are trying to share with your fellow citizens?
You should try to read it between the lines, sometimes I just simply doodle them without trying to send any specific messages. It’s all coming from the imagination and inspiring objects surrounds.
have you been to art school?
Do you consider yourself an artist? why?
Because it’s the only way i could sell my works, people only buying arts from artists. 🙂
what makes you different from other artists?
I’m not trying to be different. i’m just another lame illustrator coming from the bin. but still i believe my works are loveable.
whats your favourite medium?
water marker on paper. but currently I love my Pen and Tablets. 🙂
If there had to be a soundtrack to your art, what/ who would it be?
Mates of States – My Only Offer
Sally Shapiro – Jacky Jacky (spend the winter with me)
Pavement – Shady Lane
Jonna Lee – Autumn Song
The Wispy Hummer – Winter Mirror
Now a big question “What is art” to/for you?
What do you think of the fine line between art, design, commercials etc?
It’s all about money in the end, and it’s okay.
Is art still fun?
yes. yes it is and it would always be.
