Indonesian Cityzen - Jakarta
I never wanted to live in a big city, but I have to thank Jakarta for helping me to create “Indonesian CityZen. ” Life circumstances brought me here, and I found myself painting as a way to mentally and emotionally escape from the trappings of the ultra urban environment that I found myself in, with its traffic, noise and pollution. I believe that nature came to be the subject of my paintings because it was missing so much from my everyday life.
As I began to paint more and more Indonesian animals, I realized that I wanted to share my paintings with other people who may have been feeling an absence of nature from their lives as well. I named the series “Indonesian CityZen” and began to teach about my art in schools, because I want to convey that these animals are also citizens of Indonesia with the right to live lives free from harm and to share the land with the human citizens of this country.
