About the artwork
Indonesian artist Dedy Sufriadi displays a dazzling blend of emotions and technique in this captivating work. Refusing to be bound by a particular discipline, the artist blends text with child-like scribbles and figures. The largely earth-toned colours used in this work bring to mind a sandy beach, which is reinforced by the figures in this work who appear to be sunbathing. Dedy’s quick scribbles and mix of warm and cool-toned colours fill the work with exhilarating energy, creating a striking piece that has a strong visual impact on the viewer.
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.
