Adi Gunawan's use of natural, organic shapes in his sculptures create a warm and friendly atmosphere, beckoning viewers closer to observe the affection and smiles that his characters share in each others' presence. In this sculpture, a woman whispers delightful secrets to another, both reveling in the satisfaction and joy in sharing a secret and revealing the trust and confidence that exists in a close and loving friendship.

  • +Artist Bio

    Adi was born in Yogyakarta in 1974, Indonesia and received his education at Institut Seni Indonesia, Yogyakarta. In his symbolic sculptures, Adi invokes euphoria and the significance of animals in his work due to his cultural background of growing up in an agrarian society. He uses his cultural positioning as a tool to visualize motions, gestures, characters and expressions of various subjects that he sculpts. He then conveys constructed meaning which, in and through his forms, figures and compositions, puts forth the issue of a mystical relationship between animals and humans. Adi’s highest accolade thus far was representing Indonesia at the Beijing Olympics 2008 Fine Arts Exhibition, where he was bestowed the further honor of an Olympic Torch Award. His sculpture toured Hong Kong, the United States, the Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland and many other countries.
