Award-winning Indonesian artist Vani Hidayatur Rahman unveiled an exciting line-up of 15 brand-new works in his first-ever solo exhibition in Singapore that opens on 20 June 2019 at Ode To Art Gallery. Based in Yogjakarta, the 38-year-old Indonesian contemporary artist is renowned for his vivid, distinctive and realistic style. He has received a number of art awards including the Best Painting accolade at the 2012 Jakarta Art Awards, recipient of the 2013 UOB Painting of the Year Silver Award and was a finalist at the 2008 Jakarta Art Awards. Vani’s acrylic paintings are decidedly modern, using urban imagery to reflect his life growing up in a rapidly developing Indonesia. He is especially gifted with textures, using brilliant colours and deft strokes to elevate flat paint into arresting, layered visuals.
