I have been interested in art for as long as I can remember. I first started painting about 1993 when I was living with several other artists in Salatiga, Central Java. We all began a studio space called “Gallery Butuh” and this space had a really inspirational and free environment and a strong artistic community spirit. Recreating this environment has always been a focus in setting up all the spaces and collaborations I have worked with since.

Actively involved in Sydney based community arts and artist-led spaces over the years, I have participated and exhibited in many group shows, solo shows and events, including Gang Festival, Space 3, 245 Broadway, The Wedding Circle, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, GAFFA, Knot Gallery, Bill&George.

My recent work is increasingly militant and bold and focuses on the spirit and dynamics of art and activism in today’s world. Environmental sustainability and green politics is my drive and passion and I hope, through my art, to provoke and inspire green progress and action.
