Purwa presents the feeling of a hunger for freedom through the body language of the male figure. The dynamic leap of the figure suggests a strong desire to break out of one's current position, to reach towards something higher. The athletic figure represents perfection and a tendency to position the body, which in fact is full of shortcomings.

  • +Artist Bio

    Born in 1972, Purwa is a young artist from Sanur in Bali who wants to comment on various problems he sees around him. Through these male figures, Purwa presents the problems he addresses using body language and gestures showing screams, sadness, fear, hunger for freedom and so on. The representation of male bodies in sociological contexts also indicates the issue of power that is mostly patriarchal, but the issue of power is not what Purwa primarily intends to put forth. The male figures in Purwa's works are depicted in an ambiguous manner, as men who do not demonstrate power, but instead wear clown masks of pretension.
