I have lived as a youngster among sub-culture society, bounded by its a cultural phenomenon that is called by the name of ‘youth culture’. As a part of that specific society, the ideal and its way of life starts reigning on my perspective and personal point of view of it. I realized that I may not have a single clue on what am I actually doing, and began to follow its “custom” and “norm”, that might falsely be created by customized commodification.
Those logical fallacies of being started to occur in my mind, as I tried to depict it by creating deconstructed and decomposed images of youth culture by using collage/montage technique to create my own, single perspective and point of view of its counterfeit custom. By cutting, separating, composting, and mixing one image with another, I created another explication of what I firmly believed upon the so-called “society”.

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.
