About the artist
Research shows that there are almost 9 zillion things we could do to be happier, and 1 of these things is the act of appreciating the things we see around us everyday. 
Agung’s signature sculptures dramatically enlarges some of the most unnoticed things in everyday life. His clever manipulation of proportion compels us to notice the things we usually take for granted. His works are a result of his perceptive contemplation of our contemporary, hectic world of multitasking, where the simple act of noticing and savouring the small things in our midst could prove to be a challenge. His charmingly whimsical works reminds us of the virtue in relishing the simple things in life and the beauty in stopping to smell the roses.
