Hometown: Bandung, Indonesia
Lives and Works: Bandung, Indonesia
Syaiful Aulia Garibaldi (b. 1985 in Jakarta, Indonesia) obtained a Bachelor of Arts from Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) and currently works in Bandung, Indonesia. Syaiful, fondly known as Tepu, started off as a student of agriculture in university before pursuing experimental ne arts where he applies his scienti c background to create a conceptual foundation for his art. Tepu’s works show a remarkably strong vision of art that collides with science in a graceful manner. His creation of an immersive environment was sparked by his interest in the networked and interconnected nature of ecologies, and the evocative power of microorganisms as symbols of death and decay, as well as life. Infusion between art and science transcends through Tepu’s work and gives way to a new gateway of knowledge, which is illuminated within his prints and installations.
