About the artwork

An emotionally charged tribute, this piece alludes to the artist’s father, and his dream of owning a car. Ironically, in spite of fixing them for a living, the dream was never achieved. In present time, the artist and all his siblings own and drive cars, bringing more bittersweet rony to his fathers dream. The melancholy of this piece is a deep exploration of the artist’s emotions behind this memory and unrequited dreams and desires that haunt us all.

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.
