Defeated - Mixed media on paper, sz: A3
City Ruin - Mixed media on paper, sz: A3
This is the series of collaboration with Pee Wee Gaskins (I'm still working on a few more), one of the most wanted and rising band in Jakarta. These kids have the biggest fan base and the fullest show schedule I've ever seen.
Kudos to these kids.
Recently Harry "Eye" Mahardika (the bassist player) has experienced the worst thing that anyone could have. His beloved mother passed away and by a month after that The Cold Hands of God has taken his father too. These sudden events reflect to my own personal life. I hope God has a bigger plan on this.
For sure his parents will be in a better life.
I send my deepest condolences.

The death of Mbah Surip shocked me, because he was such a phenomenon artist. He was a brave, sincere, and idealist legend and I looked up to his honesty. He showed everyone how to entertain and not afraid of being different, a true Maestro.
I hope he has a heart in us all and we could share the same love like he used to share.
We love you full, mbah...R.I.P.

Paint on wall partition sz: 1903 x 80 cm
I feel blessed to do what I've always love to do. This is sort of a "comeback" project. The duo designers (Karina & Imelda) have given us another chance to decorate the wall of the Petshop's garage corridor with dogs facial expression.
First of I have to submit several image references and long listed different variety of shop drawings, and after a few bumps here and there we (me, Andy Christian and Darmadi Setiawan) finally got to do it on site.
The process only took about 4 hours, the longest period was doing the marking & scaling, it's a bitch but somebody gotta do it.
The funniest part was when we finished the tracing (the first thing I learned from college) and Imelda didn't know it at first but then we were caught red handed when we were pulling down the image plan... hahahaha! 'Cuz she thought we were really did the portrait painting kinda stuff. Maaannn... I ain't gifted that way!
The boys did some outlining and fill in stuff, I did the final touch as in touch ups and shading.
Well it was a fun project, hopefully we got to do some more in the future.
I hope you all would enjoy it as much as we do.
Thanks for reading.
