ROBY DWI ANTONO
Born in Ambarawa, 1990
Roby Dwi Antono (Indonesia) creates paintings that recall the works of Pop Surrealist founder Mark Ryden and iconic Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara. But Antono fuses the aesthetics of Surrealism and Classical Renaissance imagery to create a contemporary juxtaposition that’s all his own.
Antono’s paintings usually feature starry-eyed children, mythological creatures and, for kicks, pop culture icons he admires such as Jerry Lorenzo, Tyler, the Creator and Takashi Murakami. No matter the subject, Antono always aims to convey a message within his paintings.
