Colour is the totality of his artistic existence in re-inter-preting his perception of what he understands of his environment. My aim is to present religi-ous symbols with new techniques, aesthetic values and composition so that they may be accepted and understood by an international audience he says. He is a graduate of ASRI Yogyakarta. He has participated in group exhibitions in cities throughout Indonesia, Australia, Japan, Switzerland and Holland. He is a founder, and currently chairman of the Sanggar Dewata Indonesia artists' association.
