Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Based in Bali, Dodit is known for his hyperrealism oil paintings that give the illusion of reality. Dodit Artawan’s latest works featuring the artist’s favorite muses – icons of western consumerism culture – in particular, Barbie dolls and western branded alcohol, a strong visual and thematically complementary combination that the artist feels is able to project the intended representational imageries for the messages that he wants to convey. Dodit Artawan portrays Barbie and her friends in their impossibly perfect figures with flawless plastic complexions set against the glistening, reflective glass towers of gin, vodkas and whiskeys to convey a seductive image of glamour, consumerism and hedonism that is so intoxicating, addictive and difficult to resist, as a commentary on the social effects of globalization and invasion of a foreign culture that has been so readily embraced by society and thereby displacing local culture.

Beyond Dodit Artawan’s impressive hyper-realistic compositions, the works’ high-definition details, vivid colors and rich textures further echoes the constant visual stimulations and sales pitch for consumer products and lifestyle that is being bombarded onto society today through printed media, television, advertisements and the internet. As a result, the visually dynamic qualities of Dodit Artawan’s works and the artist’s painting hyper-realistic technique become integral to the underlying meanings that they are meant to convey.
