In October I participated in a beautiful and unforgettable Art event near Yogyakarta. Together with 33 other artists from all over the world we painted together, held discussions, exchanged intercultural and observed the development of Indonesian Art. We ate, shared, laughed, danced and had a wonderful unforgettable time in the middle of the breathtaking environment of Omah Petroek. We made each three paintings which were exhibited at Jogja Gallery in Yogyakarta.
Quote from the catalogue: FOREWORD FROM HADI SOESANTO
“Yogyakarta has more than just culture, it’s a lively city with many artists with abundant of creativity, uniqueness, and represent both traditional and culture. Most artists are able make brilliant concept, composition and techniques with their works. Experiences of each artist can introduces the artist themselves, their ideas, and the culture of their countries. The greatest challenge for the artist is whether they are able to use all their attributes and create a style that can ignite the viewers’ imagination“.
