J. Ariadhitya Pramuhendra

Born August 13th 1984 , Semarang – Indonesia

Art matters not only can be found out of ourself. I believe every matter, not only in art, begin from ourself. That is why I draw an image of me in most of my works. Face representing most from any other part of our body in a process of identification. All things that describe by myself, that’s self-portrait is.

J. Ariadhitya Pramuhendra is quickly making a name for himself as a rising contemporary artist in Indonesia. He graduated from Bandung Institute of Technology, majoring in Printmaking in 2007. He has participated in a number of group exhibitions presenting emerging Indonesian artists over the past couple of years and has caught audience attention with his dramatic self-portraits in charcoal on canvas. Standing as one of best Indonesian Contemporary Artist, He began his carreer in such a young age. Being a reputable artist is one of his aims. His works reflected his life.
