Erwin van Duijnhoven

Erwin van Duijnhoven (1967) studied at Vrije Academie, The Hague and the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam. He is keen to explore the narrow zone between discomfort and comfort in composition, use of colour, brushstroke and themes. His painting style is spontaneous and can be regarded as a reflection of emotional release

NEDERLANDS

Erwin van Duijnhoven zoekt het liefst naar de scheidslijn van het ongemak en het comfortabele zowel in compositie, kleurgebruik, verftoets als eventuele thema. Na zijn studie aan de Gerrit Rietveld Academie, richtte Van Duijnhoven zich op ontwerpen en produceren van interieurs en meubels. Maar het schilderen geeft hem de gelegenheid om zichzelf te kunnen zijn. Van Duijnhoven probeert in het werk een poëtische dubbele laag aan te brengen, waarvan hij zelf de betekenis moeilijk lijkt te kunnen doorgronden. Objecten en vormen die in het werk verschijnen lijken door herhalingen een bepaalde betekenis te krijgen. Het schilderen gebeurt veelal als spontane actie, die gepaard gaat met emotionele ontlading.

“Mijn werk is op een bepaalde manier verwant aan het werk van de beroemde Brabantse cabaretiers en daardoor misschien wel aan een soort Brabantse manier van beschouwen en mentaliteit.

Wellicht ben ik gewoon zo geboren en berust de verwantschap op een toevalligheid, ik ga dat wel onderzoeken de komende tijd. Ik heb het over cynisme ontkrachten, op het verkeerde been zetten en onverwacht emotie oproepen alsook iets nooit te serieus laten worden.

Praktisch gezien schilder ik erg snel zonder enige voorbereiding. Ik begin te werken en zie vandaar waar het heen gaat…

Sommige van de werken die er nu staan, zijn eigenlijk een soort zelfportretten. De donkere meer non-descripte werken gaan over het totaal verloren zijn, als een soort geest door het leven zonder anker. Daarna komt er meer verhaal in de portretten. Langzaamaan lijken het duidelijkere in de vlotte beschouwing letterlijkere verhalen.

Het is in mijn ogen dan ook heel interessant om het hele proces en dus meerdere werken over de hele serie te laten zien.”

Raymond Boekelder

Raymond Boekelder

Raymond Boekelder (1962) studied at the AKI, Enschede and the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam. His oeuvre has been built on stylised realistic paintings. He is however continuously trying to find the insightful relation between the artificial world of objects and human. Human figures as object with simplified body parts, and with knots connected by lines, are part of his visual language.

NEDERLANDS

Raymond Boekelder studeerde aan de kunstacademie AKI in Enschede en aan de Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten te Amsterdam. Boekelder heeft inmiddels een oeuvre opgebouwd van realistische verstilde kunst waar vorm en inhoud dichtbij elkaar liggen. Ondanks de eerdere successen gunt hij zichzelf ruimte voor het experimentele. Terugkerend thema in zijn werk is communicatie, die telkens een andere gedaante krijgt. Boekelder zoekt voortdurend naar inzichten tussen de kunstmatige werelden van object en mens. Maar ook de mens als object. Diens vereenvoudigde lichaamsdelen, verbonden door lijnen zijn onderdeel van een eigen beeldtaal. Het zijn gewortelde mensen waaruit plantaardige organen spruiten die laten zien hoe de aarde en de mens verbonden kunnen zijn.

Olexandr Pinchuk

Olexandr Pinchuk

Since 2013, Olexandr Pinchuk has been engaged in object art and is a teacher and speaker for students in the field of interior and object design. Participant of contemporary art exhibitions in Moscow, Russia and Kharkov, Ukraine. Collaborates with contemporary collection art galleries in New York, Brussels, Amsterdam and Kyiv.

Pinchuk creates art objects and multimedia installations. All works are aimed at the search and identification of mental and cultural characteristics, the search for answers to questions of human existence and society. For him, the creation of an object is a special story, a story without words. A conversation through an object is an attempt to reach the viewer through emotions, feelings, images.

Pinchuk directs the creation of the short animated film “The Big Vault” based on the poem by Taras Shevchenko. The poem is a philosophical and mystical story about life and death, past, present and future.

Annemarieke van Peppen

Annemarieke van Peppen

Annemarieke van Peppen’s art is characterised by her continous evaluation of the impact of social media on our lives, that shape and challenge our perception of the world in real. She is particularly interested to reveal the beauty of imperfect human beings. Through photography and repetition, she creates images assembled as a collage. Every piece of the image or the photograph printed on pieces of paper in different size, textures and colours. Those pieces of paper have been in turn made for different purpose than photo paper, like newspaper or joss paper (coloured paper used as offerings, common in Chinese culture).

For her recent project THE HERO IN YOU, exhibited at the Bruijs shipyard, Bergen op Zoom, Van Peppen photographed Ukrainian women refugees to help them cope with their traumatic experiences. The women are seen wearing their self-made amulets and clothes as reminder for the mother country they have been forced to leave. It was also an art collaboration project of Van Peppen with 4 other Ukrainian artists.

The exhibition In Infinity – The End, Annemarieke van Peppen will show her newest works, greatly inspired by the Trimurti philosophy of Balinese Hindu. The Trimurti (from Sanskrit) are the trinity of supreme divinity in Hinduism, in which the cosmic functions of creation, maintenance, and destruction are personified as a triad of deities. Typically, the designations are that of Brahma the creator, Vishnu the preserver, and Shiva the destroyer. The effect of this holy trinity is the philosophy embracing the concept that everything happens in one’s life is necessary to strike the balance and to complete the infinite circle of lives.

Van Peppen is a socially engaged artist, involved in several charitable projects in The Netherlands and Indonesia.

Putut Wahyu Widodo

Putut Wahyu Widodo

Putut Wahyu Widodo (deceased 2021) was an artist living and working in Semarang, Indonesia. His works reflect his background as a journalist and editor of one of the leading newspaper in Java. He found his inspiration in news and media events. The blurry images in his paintings are reminiscences of  frozen captures of the video or film frames.

As a painter-cum-visual editor, Putut was especially aware and sensitive towards the power of images. In commercial photography and art, and in particular advertising, the meaning must be clear and distinct and most importantly must provoke a desire to consume. Similarly, Art can communicate feelings and emotions, or thoughts and ideas. These portraits exemplify a modern realism where graphic abstraction, semi-Cubist elements, and figuration meet to create images which are ‘less’ portraits of people and ‘more’ about the creation of a mood, an emotional state, and even alienation. The portraits are more than a mere visual artistic rendition of human gestures and poses. Putut’s task is to reveal what resides underneath the surface appearance of observed empirical reality. The images are mainly free of perspective and have an intensity of line, a flatness of form, minimal use of colour, and most importantly, a harmony of all over design. An aesthetic concern that dominates his entire body of work. Even the picture frame seems to imprison the nude and the elements depicted, enhancing feelings ranging from the serene to uneasiness. Some of the images are physiologically unnerving.

Putut worked with all kinds of digital imaging software. By exploring, exploiting, and experimenting with digitally created images, he is showing us how image making technology can help us to radically change our way of looking, and, thus, enhance our understanding of the world. His artworks reflect an intensive interrogation into our contemporary culture which is increasingly being governed by commercially produced images. Putut did not want to simply copy the work of a machine, but, he wanted to illustrate the problems of converting a digitally produced image into an ‘artwork’. Consequently, in the artworks created for his exhibition, ‘Serene Bodies’, Putut attempted to marry the figurative or narrative contents of photography, with the abstract qualities of painting.

As the works ‘Daylight Fading’, ‘Waiting So Long’ and ‘No In Between’ demonstrate, Putut attempts to depict the ‘alienation’ and ‘self control’ of the modern human being in a contemporary society. Putut thought that “the human body is a space for testing our behaviour and recognizing ourselves, even our own sense of belonging to our own body”. Within these works, Putut apparently wished to erase all the narrative associations which usually can emerge from a photographic image, and, instead, combine this ‘narration’ into a simplified unity of body language, as the subject matter. Putut was exploring a unified image of the human body to stimulate the viewers own sensations and our own unexpected perceptions. However, as the works ‘Groan’ and ‘Waiting Angel’ further demonstrate, Putut was also interested in capturing the character and expressions of the abstracted moment. By utilizing painting techniques such as cropping, placement, color, shape and form, then, by further applying coats of thin acrylic washes and sharp pencil markings to his artworks, Putut succeeded in creating images that do not represent a ‘natural’ object, but, rather express an exploration of a whole new sensual dimension.

Artist’s statement (Bahasa Indonesia)

Belajar tentang kesadaran dan belajar dari kebajikan adalah belajar dengan mengalami sendiri secara langsung dan bukan karena percaya berdasarkan mitos atau pendapat yang diyakini orang lain. Menguji pengalaman diri sendiri baik yang bersifat vertikal ataupun horizontal. Yang mendapatkan pengajaran dari “hidup” ini sendiri maupun yang Ilahiah.

Hal tersebut di atas sangat berpengaruh pada proses berkarya saya, baik contents maupun visual. Tentunya sangat subyektif dan agak tersembunyi. Dan ini adalah pilihan saya dalam berkesenian, dan merupakan konsekuensi logis yang saya hadapi. Tapi berkesenian seperti ini membuat saya bahagia, karena saya punya keyakinan bahwa apa yang saya ceritakan melalui karya saya tetap ada orang-orang yang dapat menangkap atau menerima “tanda” yang saya sampaikan. Ibarat seseorang yang pernah mencicipi atau makan buah apel, tentunya dia dapat dengan mudah menceritakan bagaimana rasa, warna dan kondisi buah apel kepada orang yang punya pengalaman mencicipi atau makan buah tersebut.

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.

Wahyu Srikaryadi

Wahyu Srikaryadi

Wahyu Srikaryadi is an established visual art artist from West-Java, Indonesia. Although he mainly makes paintings, he now also creates some installations and occasionally also sculptures.

Starting his art career as an apprentice of Barli Kartasasmita (1982-1989), one of the modern painting masters of Indonesia, he later works together with Ida Bagus Suadjana and I Gusti Matre (1994-1995). While the former masters influenced his early expressionist style, he grows gradually more interested in depicting details sharply, with clear lines and high contrasts. Rather than realist artist, he also set his subjects in dreamy overly romantic landscape or surroundings. While his paintings of Javanese Hindu and Buddhist temples are proven to be popular, his nude paintings earn a selective collectors group.

Afdhal

Afdhal

Afdhal experiments with non-traditional combinations of materials – sponge, silicon caulk sealant, paint and electricity cables. Many times he also uses waste materials in his artworks. Living in Yogyakarta with his young family, not far from the ever active volcano Mount Merapi, Afdhal is much concerned with the environment, especially with the relation of human to the nature. It is a delicate balance that easily tips to other side of the scale.

Afdhal makes installations, paintings and sculptures to depict this vulnerability and insignificance of human. He creates figurative sculptures without faces postured as if deep in thought. His larger paintings many times depict large animals in a surreal environment, surrounded by mysterious mathematical objects. There are fine lines leading to celestial bodies or simply spanning across the canvas. The animal figures while undoubtedly are symbols of strength, are set against tiny human figures or manly created objects. One could wonder who is more vulnerable; Nature of Human…

His art gains more recognition not only in Indonesia but also outside the country (Singapore, The Netherlands, Belgium). Afdhal recently also makes small works in wooden frames or plexi glass boxes – again using many artificial materials, as if to stress the artificiality of current human existence.

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.

Born:
31 December 1972, Solo, Indonesia

Education:
Seni Rupa at The Universitas Negeri Sebelas Maret (UNS)

Ronald Apriyan

Ronald Apriyan

Ronald Apriyan has long been active in the art world and is himself a talented artist. Although his style gradually changes during his lifetime as an artist, his works of art bare witness of his relentless and continuous pursue of expressing (his longing of) the idealistic life in the ever changing surroundings around his home in Yogyakarta. The development and progress have not only changed the landscape of the island rapidly, but also mean a permanent change of the quality of life. The change does not necessary mean worse life condition, but since villages, rice fields and green forests become concrete buildings and houses, people are struggling to find the balance financially as well socially in the tinier free space.

The abrupt change of his art recently has not gone unnoticed and he gains much appreciation in the art world in not only Indonesia but also abroad, with the latest successes in Singapore and Hong Kong. Although it definitely marks the new era in his works of art, at the very essence the paintings reflect the artist’s true himself.

Dadang Christanto

Dadang Christanto

Dadang Christanto has spent his career honouring the countless victims of political violence and crimes against humanity. His work expresses the suffering of victims and lays bare the anguish and grief that is endured in silence by those left behind. Despite the raw socio-political nature of his work, Christanto continues to produce art which pleads for compassion, regardless of differing faiths and political beliefs.

Dadang Christanto is an internationally acclaimed artist who has been curated into major art events worldwide including the Sydney Biennale (2010), the Venice Biennale (2003), Yogyakarta Biennial, Indonesia (2003), Kwangju Biennale, South Korea (2000), the Bienal de Sao Paulo, Brazil (1998) and the first and third Asia-Pacific Triennials of Contemporary Art, Brisbane (1993 & 1999). His work is held in major public and private collections around the globe.

The series of heads exhibited in ‘austral-asia zero three’ (Sherman Galleries, 2003) and shown previously at the Alliance Française Gallery in Yogyakarta, refer to the relentless cruelty of humankind among those of different faiths or political systems. The disappearance of multitudes of Indonesian political dissidents during the mid-1960s purges, when Dadang’s father was lost without trace, is a recurring theme in the artist’s oeuvre.

Abdi Setiawan

Abdi Setiawan

Abdi Setiawan’s work is installation-based, and features half or life-size sculptures of everyday Indonesians in various social settings. A very skillful wood carver, he makes mainly wooden sculptures along with fibre glass hand-painted unique replicas or editions. His rendering of the figures are not only realistic but also infused with humorous satire.

Born:
29 Desember 1971, Pariaman, Sumatera Barat, Indonesia

Education:
ISI Yogyakarta, Jurusan Seni Kriya, 2003

Abdi Setiawan’s sculptures return to the skill of wood carving while deploying the artist’s entire imagination and perception to depict the Indonesian human figure. The work takes form as a spatial arrangement, which presents the atmosphere of a city corner such as a waiting room, bus terminal or shopping mall; a representation of a fragment of the activities of city dwellers – which wait, come and go – just wryly. The realistic rendering of the figures pokes us with satire so that we smile away our embarrassment in recognising our own behaviour reflected. Today’s life and culture are those of the city – with all its complexity of problems: population explosion, insufficient dwelling space, transportation, excessive consumption, crime and poverty. The advancement of modernity and its related humanitarian problems are becoming obvious in urban life. Direct involvement in attempt to familiarise himself with the atmospheres of certain corners of the city as well as the characters of the people there, almost always prevails in Setiawan’s process of making works. Setiawan understands the emotional experiences that have their shares in shaping the characters of the figures he intends to offer by means of his sculptures. However, in the making and finishing of his works the artist transcends the experiences and observations. He knows he needs to add his personal interpretations and judgments to the various recorded physiognomic data of his figures. He reclaims his humanitarian intention and interest to critically understand what is going on around him. And he has to deal with discovering and defining the various formal aspects in his works so as to contain all his ideas and thoughts. Abdi Setiawan carefully calculates the elements necessary to represent in his sculpture figures. The teak wood he carves roughly so as to produce unlevelled surface. The acrylic colours enforced to mix on the surface of the polyester casts of his wood sculptures are effecting detailed accessories and clothing, and through gestures and poses (arms crossed, gripping a hand phone), facial expressions, gazes and glances – all elements which add to the rich physiognomic images in his works. Tattoos, clothing patterns and brands, graphical T-shirt imprints and other attributes from popular culture make strong references to art history. Not always Setiawan feels the need to give his figures life sizes. He has already arrived at the plane where he gives prominence to rich physiognomic images rather than merely anatomic precisions. – Enin Supriyanto

M.A. Roziq

M.A. Roziq

M.A. Roziq sees the photography as a way to express his thoughts and imagination rather than capturing lights and events. One of his teachers at the Photography Academy was Iswanto Soerjanto, a photographer also represented by Gallery Lukisan.

Roziq expresses his concern on the degrading life environment by using metaphors built up from ordinary daily objects and toys. Sometimes he chooses the subjects of his photography covered in fluffy, but volatile and short-lived soap bubbles, while the other times the subjects are completely frozen in ice. Before Roziq can make even photograph of the iced objects, he must first of all make the ice made of pure of coloured frozen water. He creates ice cubes, smooth blocks, shapes and even complete elaborated sculptures. The translucent ice gives a fascinating look to the sealed objects, distorts the image but also enhances the contrast by the quality of light, blurring their original purpose and giving them different meaning.

By choosing ice as a symbol of preserving, Roziq finds a way to comment on the current societal questions in a fresh and humorous manner. No wonder that he has been selected several times to exhibit his works at the ArtJog, the most important contemporary art festival in Indonesia.

Maryanto

Maryanto

With his activist art, Maryanto has gained international recognition, a number of international art collaboration projects and exhibitions in important art events. His works come into existence from his deep desire to expose the negative ecological damage human brings into the nature and to the living environment.

Maryanto creates evocative, black and white paintings, drawings, and installations that undermine the romantic language of traditional landscape painting to examine socio-political structures in the physical spaces that he depicts. Through fable-like and theatrical settings, these landscapes are subjected to the whims of colonisers and capitalists through technological development, industrialisation, pollution of the land and exploitation of its natural resources. (Source: Yeo Workshop, Singapore)

Maryanto makes artworks that serve as a form of storytelling with the impression of theatrical stage or landscape setting. The work as stories explores and transfers knowledge through historical research, myths and stories combined with the artist’s own artistic imagination and constructed forms. The results are dramatic and romantic black and white installations made of paintings, etchings, rich charcoal drawings that evoke stories and environments. The subject of his ongoing project that commenced several years ago has to do with his curiosity on resources and its effect on a country and politics. In his daily observations of life in Indonesia, combined with his formal training in the arts at the Institute of the Art, Yogyakarta, Indonesia, and his subsequent residencies in the Netherlands at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten and the Esculea de Orient programme at Casa Asia Barcelona, Spain, as well as his gallery solo shows, he is able to compare and explore the history of colonialism and its role in the allocation of resources. He sees “resource” as a pandora’s box; that a country with big resources could cause tension and conflict between the systems that navigates and governs economics and daily life of the people.

Maryanto recently exhibited at the “Discoveries” section of Art Basel Hong Kong 2016, the Setouchi Triennale 2016, Bazaar Art Jakarta 2016, and Art Stage Singapore 2017. He also participated at the Yogyakarta Biennale 2015 “Hacking Conflict, Indonesia meets Nigeria”, creating a large entrance piece, and the Jakarta Biennale 2015 “Neither Forward Nor Back” as curated by Charles Esche with an installation work “Temah Ruah di Wonocolo”.

Yang Seungwook

Yang Seungwook

Talented and brave young Korean photographer. Winner of the 2019 Pride Photo Award with his series “Play Toy” at the Pride Photo Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Next to this series, he also gets a Special Mention for his other contribution series “Badasses”.

His photo series are a proof of his keen eyes for details, humor but also self-reflection. Masses children toys congest and are piled up together to form new objects, they could have been part of endless fractal objects. The super-hero toys seem to lost their playful innocence, while engaging awkward and eroticism acts and position, provoking laugh and shock at the same time. His Second Memories series explore his more serious side, while his “Home, Bittersweet Home (2010-2014)”, reveals an honest portrait of the degradation of his both grandparents in their later years.

“Sometimes I feel awkward and unfamiliar on the way, when seeing rubbish abandoned on the street or things left alone. My photographs started with the process that catching the moments. I have been making works through creating novel scenes, adding my own experiences and recollections to the moments, and reproducing images taken already.” – Yang Seungwook

“지나가던 길에 버려진 쓰레기나 사물들로 인해 그 주변이 굉장히 어색하고 낯설게 느껴질 때가 있다. 이런 순간들을 포착하는 과정에서 사진작업이 시작되었다. 여기에 개인적인 경험과 기억이 더해져 새로운 장면을 연출하기도 하고, 이미 촬영된 이미지들을 섞어 재편집함으로서 또 다른 작업을 만들어내고 있다.” – Yang Seungwook

Dedy Sufriadi

Dedy Sufriadi

Dedy Sufriadi has been very active in the Indonesian contemporary art scene, and has to date had over ten solo exhibitions, and has participated in numerous group exhibitions. Despite the growing success in his career, this artist has involved himself with many community projects and helps out young artists in his community. He is also a part of the Fighting Cocks art collective, an independent group aimed at the advancement of contemporary art in Indonesia, as well as a support group for young artists.

Using variations of text and naïve symbolism, Dedy Sufriadi’s works infuse both the current ubiquity and historical importance of text and symbology into intricate abstract expressionist compositions, utilizing multilayered literary excerpts, narratives and symbols to replace what would usually be the play of colors and lines.

Dedy’s more recent works take text to another level, beyond the literal and familiar. Embodying the concept of hypertext, borrowed from the world of information technology, he invites the viewers of his art to extrapolate and form their own contextual meanings from the visual imagery presented.

In some cases the text is distinct and recognizable but quite often obscured as a result of layering and overpainting. The more we scrutinize his works, the more information materializes, in the form of text and sometimes in the form of iconography, allowing us to interpret what is presented to the viewer as visual clues. This is conceptually similar to how hyperlinks – both text and icon based – facilitate us jumping from one location to another on the Internet, revealing more information along the way.

For Dedy, both processes aim to achieve a common goal – that of gaining a deeper understanding, of ourselves and of the world around us. (source: U.C. Loh)

Yoga Mahendra

Yoga Mahendra

The works by Yoga Mahendra show the influence and the artist’s affinity with hardrock, comic strips and science-fiction.

Mahendra makes bizarre and richly imaginative paintings with grotesque figures built by other smaller figures or objects. The clusters of the figures are similar to pareidolia in the paintings by Giuseppe Arcimboldo, combined with Piranesian absurd and hellish world.

Come closer and one will soon find out. The main subject of the painting then appears to be a compound of roads, houses, ladders and bizarre objects. Street lanterns jutting out through the anatomy of the bodies. Eyes appear to be inlets of jet engines and some of the ribs are actually stairs leading to another room filled with bizarre objects. The roads are scattered with automotive machines, and little figures can be seen clinging and climbing the ladders. The houses are filled with struggling, laughing, drunken, happy and mad figures, playing music of enjoying themselves..

The particularly special artwork titled “I Stay”, inspired by his mentor Ojite Budi Sutarno, consists of different shaped, painted panels. The hybrid artwork which keeps between sculpture and painting, resembles Garuda, the state symbol of the Republic Indonesia. Garuda is a mythological figure found in Hindu and Buddhism legends and essentially seen as a protector with power and is shown either in the form of a giant bird with (partially) open wings, or a mix of form of bird with some human features. The Indonesian national airline is also called after it.

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.

Born:
