About the artwork

A play and parody on the depiction of scenes from mythology, Dedy cleverly replaces the traditional sombre colors most often used in mythological images with abstract figures and bright, lurid colours. By doing this, he not only transforms classical images into contemporary ones, but places agitation on the viewing of such mythology, portraying it in lighter tones with loud and even gauzy colors. In this painting, the artist plays on the yellow tone and brings it to highlight by include the word 'Jingaa', meaning orange. By doing this, he brings further attention to the inversion of traditional color into bright and decidedly modern hues.

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.
