Jakarta Vintage

About Evan Aditya

Evan Aditya illustrates his vision with bright color and monsters. He tries to convey the biased and unrealistic values that burden in today’s fast pacing generation. As the result, Evan believes that we need to channel our voices.

That’s why as the founder of Show The Monster, character design and pattern studio based in Jakarta, he makes a brand as a symbol of freedom for self-expression.

This piece is a collaboration between Jakarta Vintage and Evan Aditya, featured in the Future Vintage auction.

About Mabelle Emeralda

Mabelle is a designer based in Jakarta. Her interest for art dates back to when she was a child and her father took her to an auction house. A single painting was so captivating that she began experimenting with visual arts and its varying media.

In high school Mabelle’s interest for interior design grew following a project i.e. designing a student lounge. The budget was not enough to cover all the expenses and Mabelle decided to make her own line of furniture using waste materials notably, one from the plant water hyacinth which clogs up the water reservoir, sewer etc that caused flooding in Jakarta.

Her study continues in Italy, specifically Istituto Marangoni Milano. In her time there she felt that the world of interior design and fine arts were not so different after all and believes that the two can overlap or even merge together.

Unfortunately, her time in Milan was short-lived as she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and had to stay in Jakarta. Before enrolling back to university she experimented with other career options such as being a fine artist, tattoo artist, a florist and a terrible tango dancer. But finally interior design was the right path for Mabelle and she enrolled in LaSalle College Jakarta where she is in her final semester and interning at Jakarta Vintage.

 

These are the chairs in collaboration with Mabelle which will be put in auction. We can find here the Modern Man chair, the Modern Woman chair , the Peacock chair and last but not least, the Zoloft chair.

Life – 2024

Hey! Back
again with me, and of course I have something interesting to share with you guys.

Lately we
have been moving our showroom from Darmawangsa Square to Jalan Benda, Kemang.
On Saturday 22nd of September, we held an event here at our new
showroom called ‘Life 2024What life in 2024 would be like in the minds
and hands of 11 artists’
This exhibition is a collaboration with One Comm
Indonesia, Yayasan Bina Kreatif Indonesia and Suar – Art space. This event
exhibits 10 paintings that tell a story about how our life will be in 2024.

These
paintings are curated by a good friend of mine, Nin Djani, and the artists are, Aisha
Hanna, Arris Aprillo, Aqil Prabowo, Atreyu Moniaga, Evan Aditya, Garisinau, Ika
Vantiani x Feransis, Lala Bohang, Mahendra Nazar & Sarkodit
. In fact, these
paintings are actually going to be exhibited until 22nd of October
so if you’re curious about it, feel free to check out our showroom.

The event
was a total success, everybody had so much fun and all of my friends enjoyed
the exhibition. Almost all of my close friends attended the event and that gave
the event a personal touch, and it was also a great platform for everybody to get
to know someone knew.

At the end
of the event, everybody gets a poster which has one of the artist’s paintings
on it, and is picked up randomly so it’s kind of like a surprise who gets which
artwork. I would like to say thank you to all the sponsors which are Formica, Mowilex, Teka Parquet &
Cosentino
which enhances the look of our showroom. Now you can enjoy some
pictures from the event. See you next time!

STYLE & SUBSTANCE: Exhibition at IDentities booth, Salone del Mobile

Exhibiting — for the second time — in the world’s most important fair that is Salone del Mobile in Milan makes me honored and super proud. Along with 26 Indonesian designers, I was chosen to exhibit my work in IDentities booth at Rho Fiera Milan, Italy, from 17 until 22 April 2018. This time around I was exhibiting Style and Substance — a limited edition fine porcelain tableware collection. The concept is inspired by the creative and visionary Nitisemito, the King of Kretek from the 1920’s. The design is a combination of the authentic art deco style and local motifs and objects with a touch of geometric and symmetrical designs as well as the color selection of gold, black and white, making it exclusive, premium and lux. 
Indonesia is rich in culture and tradition that I am proud of. It has always been my mission to tell a story — an Indonesian perspective— through the design and products that I create. This collection is exactly about that. For the world to know and appreciate the design that is made and inspired by Indonesiana . for the foreigners to get to know and appreciate the design that is inspired and made by Indonesians. A special thanks to Bekraf for this opportunity. Viva Indonesian design.

A Glimpse of Indonesian Design in Milan

Anyone, any designer would be extremely delighted and honored when his or her design made the cut to be exhibited in Milan – the Mecca and the capital city of fashion and design. I was one. My picnic chair, which I call “Jakarta Picnic Chair” and my fabric named “Herbs and Spice Island” were exhibited in Zona Tortona, during Milan Design Week, earlier this month.

It was actually Indonesia’s first time to be featured here in Milan Design Week! Indonesia’s debut exhibition was called IDentities: Handmade Contemporary Indonesian Design Pavilion. So you can imagine how lucky I felt, to be one of the selected Indonesian designers who got to tag along… and exhibit! Alongside myself, there were other Indonesian designers such as Sagalakayu and Kandura Studio.

Anyway though, it felt real good to have Indonesian designs recognized, I feel like it hasn’t been looked upon that much. Indonesia is home to many ethnicities, cultures, and much more, which means we have a lot to show too! Thank you Bekraf (Badan Ekonomi Kreatif Indonesia) for making this happen!

TUKANG JANGAN DITINGGAL – My Very Own Exhibition @ Suar Artspace

Another addition to the very artful month of August is… my own exhibition! My very first solo exhibition that is. Thanks to Nin Djani of Suar Artspace for giving me this opportunity. 

Having my own exhibition is a pretty challenging task, yet very intriguing. After extensive “discussions”, I decided to have “Tukang Jangan Ditinggal” as the title and theme of my exhibition. Why Tukang? Because i deal with them on everyday basis…  They are there, they help and they fix my problems…. Yet for many as if they didnt exist. Tukang is a “man of service”.  So I thought to myself, why not put them in the spotlight for once?

For this exhibition, I brought along Pak Tasman. He fixes shoes for a living (tukang sol), and I am one of his devoted customers. Aside from bringing his own tools, he also brought some of his tools and props including the shoes that he has fixed. Other than Pak Tasman, at the end of the exhibition there will be other “Tukangs”, such as permak Levi’s (a guy that fixes jeans) and Patri. It’s like a little marketplace, a one-stop place for you to get your belongings fixed!

And… You have probably noticed by now that I haven’t mentioned any of my Jakarta Vintage items being exhibited… because I didn’t intend to exhibit them 😉 I learned a thing or two about how well my love for vintage items and the profession of tukang correlates along the process of exhibition. We both are not consumptive, we both believe that renewing items and making old items useful again are probably the right thing to do. Which means that we’re both eco-friendly, we don’t throw away things, we just make them new again.

Anyway, my exhibition still runs until September 6th at Suar Artspace, Lebak Bulus. Do drop by and check out the Tukangs! Their work often gets unnoticed, this exhibition is like an ode from me to them, here’s a chance for you to thank them too, Tukang Jangan Ditinggal! 😉

Art Stage Jakarta 2016 – Where Art Meets and Connects

Told you August is an artful month! Another event I happily (and very honored) to be a part of is Art Stage Jakarta earlier this month. This is Indonesia’s very first boutique art fair, thus it was an important event. The event was made possible due to the collaboration with Singapore’s Art Posters Gallery. I love collaborations, it connects us together, I always say, “why be alone when we can be together?”.

For Art Stage, I brought along the chairs I designed in collaboration with Svetlana Petrova of @fatcatart, Russia (who adds her super cute fat cat in famous paintings). I also brought along a three seater bench with an artwork taken from my second book, ADV (Art. Design. Vintage.)

Boy, how honored and humbled I am with this opportunity. Exhibiting your works to the art buyers and enthusiasts who come from around the world is something you wouldn’t get every day. Interacting with people who love what you do is such an exhilarating experience.Herewith, before ending this post, I’d like to thank dear friends of mine. Guillaume and Sean from Art Porters Gallery Singapore, for the opportunity and my constant supporter James for connecting us.Anyway though, here are pictures from the event! Do note that these pieces will be exhibited again in October 2016, at The Fullerton Hotel, Singapore.
