About the artwork

After becoming a father, Dedy Sufriadi was inspired to explore depictions of the surrounding world as if through the eyes of a child. The artist conflates text, drawings and scribbles in one captivating painting, in which numerous child-like renderings of animals fill the canvas. The artist’s quick scribbles injects the work with invigorating energy, which is reinforced by the warm colours he uses for the background of the painting. Through his unique artistic technique Dedy creates a vibrant world inhabited with fascinating creatures, akin to one a child might conjure from their vivid imagination.

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.
