In Batik’s Kingdom & Pleasant Plantation
60.0 x 4.0 x 140.0 cm
Acrylic on Canvas

The idea of my painting is the process of cultural interaction, where I transport my culture and transform it in relation to other cultures that I meet in different country and in different form. My personal intention is to create a contemporary batik style, which can be used as part of the cultural ‘Transporter’ concept.

Careful attention is needed in the treatment of our traditions; not just preserve them, but imbue them with life in the context of the present day that they will have meaning in the current global art horizon. Actually, I just adopt the basic pattern because I feel that it is my duty as an artist to transform it into a contemporary piece that can be appreciated by the public across continents.
