About the artist
Erianto, a West Sumatran born artist based in Jogjakarta, paints cardboard packages and wooden crates of various sizes on canvas, creating the illusion that the packages and crates are real—a feat that could signify the end of painting itself. Through this series, Erianto portrays the studio of an artist after their unsold artworks are returned to them after the exhibition has ended. He pushes the limits of painting in an exceptional manner, evoking a sense of urgency to rethink painting as it used to be practiced. His artworks blur the line between paintings and objects.
Erianto’s clever use of his native language in his works acts as a reminder of his roots and casual wisdom that he wants to hold close. The labels on his packages and crate paintings are directed towards the commercial dominance in the Indonesian art scene. All in all, he wants the audience to enjoy his works in a fun way.
Erianto has enjoyed international success having won awards such as the Bandung Contemporary Art Awards, Finalist of Tujuh Bintang Art Award, and have exhibited in Singapore, Indonesia, South Korea, Hong Kong, Germany and USA.
