Lives and Works: Yogyakarta
As he was raised by a single mother, Soneo had to struggle and was forced to find odd jobs to pay for his school fees. To him, this is a true meaning of a fight that has to go on. A strenuous tension and pressure that inspires the strength of self-motivation. For Soneo, Creating artwork is like a sedative. It comes as no surprise that in each of his artwork, a recording of traces of event are stored – a life narrative biography which releases the power of self-motivation. Soneo’s works are inspired from his own life and living memory journey. Life is a self-motivation to attain happiness. Being alone does not necessarily means loneliness, but it is an energy to raise oneself, a contemplation.
Soneo has been actively involves in numerous exhibitions in country and overseas. He emerged as a finalist in several events, including the prestigious Philip Morris Art Awards, three years in a row from 1999 to 2001.
