Acrylic on Canvas
150 x 250cm
Using children as his primary characters of expression, Indra Wahyu uses the veil of childish naivety and innocence to uncover present states of covert societal influences, beliefs and norms. In this piece, Indra Wahyu has painted a lamb which is a symbol of renewal, innocence, and tenderness; more importantly, it is also a symbol of Jesus. The conceptual aftermath of Wahyu’s work is one that warrants a deep set introspection, brought straight to the viewer’s centre of thought through the utilization of powerful visuals. Agreement in last Supper is one such example of his style where the artist revolutionizes the epic canonical image and places in perspective the pillars it stands on, when viewed detached from its symbols and heritage.
