Art Xchange Gallery

Harper's Bazaar Art (Indonesia) - - Exhibition Highlight - Budi Asih

Mod­ern and con­tem­po­rary art has found many homes in gal­leries across In­done­sia, and one of the most prom­i­nent hosts is Art Xchange Gallery. The gallery was founded in Surabaya, East Java, in 2009, but then moved to Sin­ga­pore to fur­ther ex­pose lo­cal artists to in­ter­na­tional mar­kets. Their ros­ter of tal­ents—which in­cludes artists from In­dia and Rus­sia—has par­tic­i­pated in glob­ally renown art fairs such as Art

Stage Sin­ga­pore, Asia Con­tem­po­rary Art Show Hong Kong, Art Expo New York and Bazaar Art Jakarta. For this year’s art fair, Art Xchange will bring five new emerg­ing artists such as Budi Asih (spe­cial­iz­ing in ball­point pen and col­ored pen­cils on pa­per), Lak­samana Ryo (a pop sur­re­al­ism artist whose big-eyed char­ac­ter, Flo Alo­gia, is rem­i­nis­cent of Mar­garet Keane’s paint­ings), Ledy Kadang (promis­ing in­stal­la­tion artist), Nahyu Rahma Fathri­ani (whose in­fat­u­a­tion with an­i­mals is re­flected on her wa­ter­color paint­ings) and Rizal Kedthes (sculp­ture artist).
