Hometown: Central Java
Lives and Works: Indonesia
Born in 1978 in Solo, Central Java, Indonesia, Aditya Novali graduated from Parahyangan University, Bandung with a B.Eng. in Architecture in 2002 and Design Academy Eindhoven, the Netherlands with an IM Masters in Conceptual Design in 2008. He currently lives and works in Indonesia.
Novali works with a variety of materials, often first conceiving an idea and then finding the right medium to transcribe his vision. Novali’s background in architecture plays an influential role in his work. His sensitivity to structure, space, and knowledge of construction shapes his approach and aesthetic. Addressing themes such as boundaries, identities, materialism, and urban life, Novali’s work interacts with the viewer and transforms with each viewing. His work often features an element of humour and playfulness.
Novali’s work has been exhibited in galleries and institutions all over the world, including in Indonesia, Singapore, Taiwan, UK, Italy, Switzerland, Japan, and Lebanon. Some of his previous exhibitions include Conversation Unknown (2015), Art Jog 15, Indonesia; Painting Sense (2014), Roh Projects, Indonesia; and Indoscape: A Geo-History (2011), Galerie Canna, Indonesia. He was nominated for Best Emerging Artist Using Installation at the Prudential Eye Awards in Singapore.
