bye 2016 hello 2017

These were all the bits and pieces I took during Christmas and the end of year holiday. I’m not into writing  at this moment, it’s so difficult to arrange the words, thinking about all the grammar makes me tired..or maybe coz I’m not practicing much..I don’t know.. so I’m just gonna display pictures and explain what those were-when did they occur.

Oi is is almost 17 months now, she gets fuzzy every time I put on her clothes after shower, because she enjoys playing water in the bathroom and doesn't want to leave it.

I love to take notes on almost anything and put it on the fridge’s door. If you noticed the background, the standing lamp was removed and we put ‘brick wall’ sticker wall behind it.

Exhibition haul

Yeay Finally I can post my latest artwork from Munipicium Ars International Art Exhibition held on Petra Christian University and ModCon. The first one was basically for the lecturers and students around the world responding on how they saw people and the city where they live and what was going on in there through arts. People from Netherlands, England, Japan and China had been joining in this event, so it was super cool, as a matter of fact I can get credit points by participating to this international exhibition. The next one  I was participating to was Modcon (Modern Conference). It was a competition under the collaboration of Jakarta 32 c and The Australian embassy. The goal is to engaging the newcomer artists, professionals and students to create their masterpiece and a platform to showing it off. So here are my process that I had been done all through in order to create the work.

These are my work for Munipicium Ars at 15th-18th August 2016. I superimposed two objects, the city building and the profile picture of Esa. The old Surabaya remake pictures as shown bellow were my college work in the final year at 2008.

..and here is my work for ModCon with the concept shown bellow..

‘The Digital Makeover displays ‘pretty’ bluntly what technology is capable of. The man bestie constructs almost everything in our life and it seems so helpful that we become addicted to it like the apps on our gadgets and cellphones. The beauty apps for instance, constructs the way of women see beauty especially in Indonesia. Young girls rapidly apply effects and filters within the beauty apps because having a fair skin, heart-shaped face, wide eyes are considered as beauty. Just tap, tap, tap on the screen, the face will instantly look beautiful without any cost. The girls love it, so every time they take selfies, they edit their photo. Its easy, and totally fun to do. More so it become a ‘ritual’ in today’s society.

The mundane activity celebrates beauty as just some cover, forgetting the essence, abandoning what’s really real. It doesn’t matter if it’s fake or not, true or false as long as it’s fun, it’s cool. Indonesian women are losing their real beauty: tanned skin, with narrow eyes and broader jaw-Malayness kinda look, substituted with the new construction of beauty that is more Korean and Caucasian.

#1 Fashion Momentum with Pison Art N Fashion Foundation

So lucky to be invited in Fashion Momentum with PISON Art N Fashion Foundation this weekends at SUTOS, there were drawing workshop, talk shows and  fashion shows..well, if it wasn’t for the institution’s plan opening the new department in fashion I definitely wouldn’t be there.. So me and my friends-Astha and Esa, we’re on a mission looking for any useful information in order to support  the new department for the institution we work for.

lurycoco.comOn Friday we met Machiko Maeyama, a Manga painter from Japan. She shared us how to drawing and coloring Manga-not the one we had expected for actually, the real fashion drawing was all we need. Not surprisingly this workshop was to promote drawing pen.. *sigh*

Not to forget the mission by the way, we managed to get several name cards from the display. Who knows 2 years from now these young designers will be tutors in our new department. Check out for day 2 report of Fashion Momentum with Pison Art N Fashion Foundation here.

Bandung Creative Movement

So excited today, in just 2 days I’m in Bandung, I’m becoming part of  Bandung Creative Movement International Seminar at Telkom University. It’s my debut to bring a presentation about my thesis for proceeding journal. That is the ‘Nostalgia and Authenticity of Faux Vintage Photo in Instagram through Digital Filters’ (see here) I bring out in front of class for only ten minutes, so I give a rapping presentation to catching up.I don’t expect much for feedback with the tight time table they give me and so many slides I have, few people will understand my presentation, if any, shame…BUT I gain a lot from this mind-broadening event.

The bible..the proceeding journal..I can’t wait for the 2nd edition!

The day before the seminar was about creative industries in Indonesia, where local creators go global such as Christiawan Lie-The Director of Caravan Studio Indonesia and my biggest inspiration Didit Maulana-Founder of IKAT Indonesia. They remind me of the dream to become fashion designer- having my own labels and printing my artwork on to the fabrics-will possibly come true if I put my best effort and dedication to it (see my new clothing line here). I’m also proud to these people with their innovation creating the local creative community such as Irvan Noe’man-The chairman of ITB IASR, Indonesian Power, and BD+A, Ria Papermoon-The Founder of Papermoon Puppet Theatre, Phaerly Maviec-The Founder of Parental Advisory Baby Clothing.
