Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

We believe in life after death, where the spirits of our ancestors reside. In Javanese tradition, they believe that ancestral spirits are always with us and take care of us even though we are in different dimensions. And we, who are still living in this world, should always try to protect our cultural heritage and ancestral land.

Artist Profile

Born: 1983

Hometown: Yogyakarta

Based in: Indonesia

Aly Waffa is a well established artist from Indonesia who uses the scraping technique to create dreamy surrealistic paintings. The predominant elements in his works are tree roots and general flora, miniature human figures, farm animals and myriad of fantastic creatures. Each element has artistic significance – For example, the roots render deep philosophical meanings; as a foundation that continuously supports life even though it is never seen on the surface, while the small white human figures are the creations of Aly's imagination which were inspired by the limestone mining workers in his hometown. The scraping technique gives a distinctive character to his works and the choice of soft colors builds the overall mood that is dreamy and pleasing to the eyes.
