Artist Profile

Born: 1979

Hometown: Sukoharjo

Based in: Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Irwanto Lentho is an established master artist from Indonesia. Said to have gifted hands, Lentho specializes in wood and hardboard cutting techniques with delicate and intricate designs coloured over by hand. Lentho has a unique style of painting that is influenced by the surrounding marvels and sensations that he experiences in daily life. Nevertheless, with his artistic creativity he transmutes these mundane events into mesmerizing pieces of art. His paintings often feature darker tones to suggest the political struggles within his country. Although the dark colors are dominant, he brings out a buoyant composition without making the whole work melancholic.
Lentho graduated from the Institute of Art in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, and has developed his own style in wood cutting, pointillism and so on. His style of work is time consuming; Some of his works take almost 4 months to develop. However, Lentho feels that time moves slowly and he is able to savour life while he is working. So he dutifully immerses himself in work, cutting and carving the wood little by little, paying great attention to intricate details and then bringing it all together by adding colours.
