The idea comes from the pattern repetition (loop) of Hip-hop music where at a specific part of the song is repeated and turn into a new song. He uses a number of paintings on the wall in a certain pattern; a repetitive pattern. This pattern can be interpreted as a life routine of a person who formed a repetitive pattern by itself. People mobility issue in a hotel can also be seen as a 'loop'. Starts from check-in, sleep, breakfast, and check-out of the hotel. This repetition always happens in our lives, but people are not aware of this. Its presence comes unawared because people tend to see only the big picture. As for song; we listen to a lot of songs, but we do not pay attention to its repetition.

Design and art is a reflection of life. It is an expression, communication of emotion or other qualities to engage an individual’s aesthetic sensibilities. It stimulates individual’s thoughts, emotions, beliefs or ideas through senses. Human being is able to explore the sensation of design and art through five senses… and also another one, mind sense. The mind denotes an internal sense organ which interact with sense object that include sense impressions, feelings, perceptions and volitions. All these six senses are called ayatana.
‘ayatana’ is an ancient Sanskrit word means “sense base” or “sense sphere”, expressing the essence of sight, taste, smell, hearing, touch hand feeling from the heart – all of which can be experienced in the 5th ICAD. We are taking you to experience design and art in ICAD using your ayatana.
My artwork for "New Icon: Pop In Asia" exhibition is called "In A Relationship". It shows a boy and girl holding hands, determined not to let physical distance get in their way. It symbolizes the relations of Asian countries that remain close, though they are separated by vast seas and distances. The colorful patterns allude to Asean’s diversity.
I had a great time meeting with all the artists and making new friends.

Popular (or Pop) Culture, is no longer something to look down upon. Today, pop culture has not only expanded, it has elevated itself. Through mass media it has become part of our daily life, examined seriously by academicians. Meanwhile, contemporary artists—in this case, visual artists—voraciously consume and present them in their works. Included amongst these artists are contemporary artists from Asian countries.
The exhibition New Icon: Pop in Asia will present works by Asian artists inspired and influenced by pop culture. The artists combine images and mass media mechanisms, and transform them into various styles. The exhibition does not only explore the differences in each artist’s sensibilities and styles, but is also aimed to increase the connection and mutual collaboration amongst them.
In cooperation with Komunitas Salihara, ARCOLABS (Center for Art and Community Management), Surya University, Tangerang, organizes this exhibition as the first of their international exchange program. ARCOLABS also works together with the Mission of the Republic of Korea to ASEAN to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the ASEAN-the Republic of Korea dialogue relations.
I was interviewed for Visual Jalanan which is a blog that captures just about everything happening in the streets including street art and artists. Here is their video on the interview they had with me.
My installation art for Manifesto No.4 "Keseharian: Mencandra Tanda-tanda Masa" at Galeri Nasional Indonesia. I used daily objects that felt close to me representing my daily routine as my input. Then I hid them away by painting them over in white. This shows that the input has been processed. After that, I painted it over again showing the output.
I participated for Start From Scratch exhibition. An initiative by young individuals that have real passion in arts. They remind me of myself a few years ago where it was a real struggle to exhibit artworks in galleries. So making own artshows were the only option. Keep on struggling, kids. Show it to the world!
Big shout out to Syahed for pulling such an awesome art performance at the show. Big ups!
