About the artwork
The variety of his subject matter is a testament to Dedy’s growth as an artist. Constantly inspired by the events around him and his personal journeys, his works continue to be diverse and versatile. Becoming a father, we can see Dedy’s inspi- ration in his ‘Childlike Series’ works where he depicts life through a child’s eyes and in doing so, creates many commentaries and angles for thought. His personal insight can be seen in many of his works, adding depth and sincerity to their abstract complexity.
About the artist
Born in Indonesia in 1976, Dedy began his artistic journey
in Jogjakarta in 1995 and began to exhibit his work at the tender age of
twenty. The recognition was inevitable as his radical and forceful works gained
immediate interest, eventually earning him many awards and critical acclaim for
his unique expressive style and abstract execution.
Strong compositions of entangled words and symbols, Dedy Sufriadi’s
paintings are powerful both in terms of visuals and meaning. Through his abstract
paintings, the artist explores the borders between discipline, words and
imagery. Refusing to be bound by a particular discipline, a unique hybrid
artistic language is used by the artist to evolve his subject matter more
freely. Creating images that are worth a thousand words and employing words
that are worth a thousand images, his pieces are striking in their directness
and honesty - leaving a memorable impact on all who view them.
