10 Pieces of Art I Would Bring Home 2

The artist, Bismar Siagian, calls his work “Bizzare”, I call it “unique”. 

SINS Fine Art Exhibition was held for five days at Guddang Gallery, just a block away from my office. Yet I missed to pay a visit and get myself a little art education. Luckily the day after it was closed down for public, I managed to visit the venue and enjoy the paintings, as –to my advantage– the artists have not come to pick up their works.

Sabila Cakra says “Mom Loves Cat More Than Me #2”, I say the cat looks cute.

Here is my personal choice again based on: would they go with my vintage pieces. Oh by the way all the artists were aged between 18 to 22…What a nice surprise, such nice works created by such fresh minds.  Enjoy the artworks and have a restful weekend!

The painting below (“Envy”) by Sidhi Pradipta would really look good in my meeting room, or above the piano at home. Well, I guess it would look good anywhere.

Freezing Smile by Ahmad Agung Ramadya, this is good to cheer up the creative room.


The painting in the center is another Sidhi’s work called “Wrath”. Funny I feel happy when I see it.

Below is another “Bizzare” work by Bismar Siagian. Again not so bizzare to me. The last three paintings belong to Sabila. And one word from me: wow!

10 Pieces of Art I Would Bring Home

Last weekend I managed to visit Galeri Nasional which was exhibiting Jatim Art Now, an art exhibition by 149 artists from East Jawa. In my humble opinion as an average Indonesian, I must say that I am impressed with the artworks. I think they are world class. As my friend Handoko always says, the choice of art is a personal matter, and here is my personal choice from the exhibition based on: would they go with my vintage pieces?


O wait. Let me count it again. Not 10 but there are 13 artworks that i would love to have in my vintage home and office. See, art can make you a little disoriented and irrational sometimes. My friend Syanda who works as an art curator asked about my preference on painting and i could not really answer. Now those 13 artworks are my answer. For your information, the exhibition will last until the 5th of July, so you will have plenty of time to pick your choice of art and share them with me her. Have an artful week ahead!
