About the artist

S. Dwi Stya Acong was born in 1977 in Malang, East Java, Indonesia. Acong studied Fine Art at the Indonesia Institute of the Art, Yogyakarta. The way in which light is captured in Acong's paintings is reminiscent of the repertoire of the earlier Impressionists. Through his short, unblended brushstrokes, he achieves an effect of intense color vibrations. This makes further apparent the rupture between time and space, which is the recurring theme of his works. The anonymous men always seem out of place within the luxuriant hues of the paintings, yet they also make Acong's compositions particularly haunting and unforgettable. As S.Dwi Stya Acong renders absurd situations with stunning ease, he presents us with a fresh interpretation of Surrealist art. S.Dwi Stya Acong was one of the finalists for the Philip Morris Indonesia Art Award in 2000. He has participated in numerous group exhibitions in Indonesia, Malaysia, China and Taiwan.
