BIO
I was born in Lampung, South Sumatera, Indonesia in 12th September 1977. After the high school in 1996, I decided to move from Lampung to grab my dream and have a career in Art and Design in Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB), West Java, Indonesia, from 1996-2001 and 2003-2005, specialized in Graphic Art/Print Making and Fine Art. Under the the famous artist, curator and lecturer in fine art ITB such as; Setiawan Sabana, Rikrik Kusmara, Tisna Sanjaya and Asmudjo Jono Irianto, Hendrawan Riyanto (RIP), Prof. Bambang Sugiharto, and I began my career as a IT Consultant, Art and Design Lecturer and fine art artist, until now.

ARTIST STATEMENT
I love drawing and doing record some people face from other profession, ethnic, country, race or from the past time untill now. The silent gesture speaks more than thousand words, for me it’s a mistery. Thousand years from now, I believe, portrait painting or drawing still exist. Having engaged subjects as diverse as the socialist movement icon, rock music and modernist painting, my work reproduces familiar visual signs, arranging them into new conceptually layered pieces.

My influences are first and foremost everything I see, feel and experience, but I've always loved portrait drawing from Andrew Loomis, Henry Yan, Zimou Tan, Jan Van Eyck, etc. The artists I most admire are Damien Hirst, Christo, Yves Klein, Francis Bacon, Chuck Close, Yayoi Kusama, and now I am very love artwork illustration from several illustrator and drawing artist from Indonesia, Korea and Iran, just named it; Agus Suwage, Agung Kurniawan, Tisna Sanjaya, Eddie Harra, Farhad Moshiri and Kim Jung-Gi, etc.
