Vintage for Auction in Kemang (Part 2): Behind The Scene

together in a nice way is –as it turned out– not an easy job. We did some trials and errors, but the result is –I must say– worth the sweat. The items look much nicer in pictures –ooops– well I guess that’s what you get when a photographer (Ricky), a stylist (Veve), a vintage junkie (Sigit) and an ad man (that’s me) work together and shine. Enjoy the video (shot and edited by Dimas) and have a nice long weekend:)

Scandinavian styled sofa in fresh new fabrics and that retro blouse are for auction. So are the artworks of Ika Vantiani on the wall.

Lost and Found Art by Ade Darmawan

Flea market and street finds are becoming art in the creative hands of artist Ade Darmawan, the founder and director of Ruang Rupa. In his solo exhibition called “Human Resource Development” at Ark Galerie (Sep 23- Oct 24), Jakarta Selatan, Ade turns objects such as second-hand chandeliers, used books and vintage desks into an art with a message. I don’t quite understand what the message is, but I do understand now that lost and found finds can make a beautiful art. So inspiring. Just look at these photos
