Aan Arif's paintings are characterised by a technique that effortlessly combines realism and expressionism. He depicts the people and experiences of everyday life, but in a distinctively expressionistic style - featuring wiped brush strokes on textured surfaces that produce a blurry effect alluding to motion and flux. With this technique, Arif creates a dynamic depiction that brings his figures to life and leads to the presentation of moving memories.

  • +Artist Bio

    Born on 21 April 1973, Aan Arif studied at the Senior High School of Fine Arts in Yogyakarta and the Indonesian Institute of Art Yogyakarta.
