Lives and Works: Yogyakarta
Peter Gentur is an artist from Jakarta, currently based in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. He works in pen, pencil, oil & acrylic to make unique human-environment focused work. Gentur's focus is on capturing the essence of people, their movement, emotion, and the intensity of human relationships, as part of a journey in understanding humanity as well as one’s self.
Gentur’s earlier work dealt primarily with social disparities and divides between people that is reflective of Jakarta’s urban setting; the relations & connections of humans between each other and society. More recent work has built on this with a specific shift from confronting how people relate to and with each other, to dealing with how these relations form also the basis for how people relate to both the social, built, and natural environment around them. His work deals with and debates “human nature for destroying itself and everything within & around it” - refer to both nature and the social fabric of societies and communities.
