Y. Indra Wahyu has achieved a new stage in his artistic journey. By combining elements from different art styles like Pop, Street Art, comic-like figurative, as well surrealist elements he has created a visual world that is at once imaginary but, at the same time, connected to reality- bridging the inner aspects of human life with outside realities. Urban realities and struggles are transformed into dreams, but dreaming as a guiding principle according to the surrealists just reveals a superior level of reality. His works show beautifully shaped compositions and bright colors, chosen with diligence. He holds command over his elements, and there is a freshness and palpable emotional power behind it. The paintings are visually charming although they refer to complex and controversial subjects. The artist has found a balance between the social issues he wants to talk about, with the desire to present them with “convulsing beauty” (to borrow here the words of the great surrealist Andre Breton). It is important to keep the dreams and hopes alive. Urban dreaming mirrors the needs of the dreamers, - achieving, struggling for success, being optimistic and hopeful when living in urban dream space.
