Born in Yogyakarta, 1984
Riono Tanggul is an artist living in Yogyakarta, born in 1984 and completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Indonesian Art Institute in Yogyakarta, in 2010, majoring in Painting.
His works use design principles as a language to communicate his imagination. Using a variety of visual clues from various sources, he combines them to formulate the desired form that conveys his thoughts. He believes that his role as an artist today is to re-present what already exists in the world through his work as a platform to open up different perspectives.
Riono Tanggul has been involved in various group exhibitions and art projects in Indonesia and abroad. He is also one of the founding members of Ace House Collective, an artist collective founded in 2011 in Yogyakarta that is engaged in youth—pop culture that emphasizes exploratory approaches, both in theory and practice, conceptually and contextually, as well as discovering new possibilities in visual perspective.
