Puri art Gallery

Harper's Bazaar Art (Indonesia) - - What’s On Baj -

Puri Art Gallery was the first es­tab­lished gallery in Malang, East Java, In­done­sia in 2001, but then moved to Surabaya in 2004. Since then, Puri Art Gallery has been de­vot­edly sup­port­ing the art at­mos­phere in the East Java dis­trict and has con­tin­ued to ded­i­cate it­self in es­tab­lish­ing the art in the re­gion, na­tion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally. This time, Joni Ram­lan and Yoga Ma­hen­dra are named as two artists high­lighted by Puri Art Gallery.

If you have ever vis­ited BAJ on its pre­vi­ous years, you would be fa­mil­iar with Joni Ram­lan’s works which put for­ward bike as his ob­ject. Joni who has been ad­mir­ing Af­fandi since he was a teenager, be­comes a self-taught artist by study­ing fine art through books of art­works. For him, bike rep­re­sents some­thing that hap­pen on its sur­round­ings, not only peo­ple but scenes or other so­cial mat­ters as well. It is sim­i­lar to Yoga Ma­hen­dra, a Malang-born artist who is also an au­to­di­dact in learn­ing art. Yoga has started draw­ing pic­tures since he was a lit­tle boy. Grad­u­ated from Vis­ual Com­mu­ni­ca­tion De­sign pro­gram, he has been par­tic­i­pat­ing in some gallery ex­hi­bi­tions as well as in­ter­na­tional art fair in

Korea, Sin­ga­pore, In­done­sia, and Malaysia.
