Visual aspects on youth culture has advanced by commodification agent called mass media and advertising. Thus affects youth generation nowadays towards visual language that spread all over variety of mass media, whether it’s printed or digital. In my perspective, this phenomena is something worth celebrating and addressed with a decent attitude for its value and cultural aspects. Besides, contemplating this movement will make another benefit to youth culture itself, as they behavior today leads into such consumptive behavior, and not seeing this as a cultural movement that quintessence a great advancement of visual language. By any means necessary, “Betwixt and Between, Momentarily Masquerade” series is a collective manifestation of a collective idioms that became part of visual culture itself. I believe, that the usage of montage techniques I use supposedly could deliver my judgement and observation towards this ‘cultural’ issue.

Based in: Bandung
After majoring in Fine Art from Institut Teknologi Bandung, I had been self-taught as graphic designer and creative director for 4 years and working on Contemporary Painting Series as personal project. Youth culture and the exceeding development in visual culture nowadays somehow interest me as I took it as a part of my personal project in which I believed to reign the youngsters’ perspective and their basic point of view of commodifications.
Altering forms, signs, idioms, and other visual aspects on my artwork, I notify that my personal work as visual artist related on my other works as graphic designer. I took pleasure on making visual branding which has the same intention as my artwork: to acknowledge and recognise people’s expectation of aesthetic form and differs it with something adequate.
