Srisas­anti syn­di­cate

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

Srisas­anti Syn­di­cate was es­tab­lished by ST. Eddy Prakoso, a per­son who has been de­vel­op­ing an ide­al­ist mis­sion (“Ini­ti­ate Global Ap­pre­ci­a­tion”) in the pre­sen­ta­tion of young and tal­ented artists of the In­done­sian fine art scene. In a con­tract pe­riod of five years of the art man­age­ment pro­gram, Srisas­anti guides its artists to not only present their piece in form of a solo or joint ex­hi­bi­tion. But it also urges them to be ac­tively in­volved in var­i­ous com­pe­ti­tions, striv­ing to help the artists in find­ing ways to par­tic­i­pate in var­i­ous in­ter­na­tional art fairs and bi­en­nales. Fur­ther­more, Srisas­anti also en­cour­ages the artists to join res­i­dency pro­grams abroad, as stated in the com­pany profile that Srisas­anti Syn­di­cate was es­tab­lished in or­der to sup­port pro­fes­sional young artists in de­vel­op­ing their pro­fes­sional ca­reers and get­ting a de­cent po­si­tion in both,

In­done­sia and global art scene.

A num­ber of artists are rep­re­sented by Srisas­anti, and Bob Yud­hita Agung, De­vald Man­ul­lang, and Suroso are some names among them. It seems hardly pos­si­ble if you do not know Bob Yud­hita Agung, or is bet­ter known as Bob Sick. The artist whose body is cov­ered in tat­toos, in­clud­ing his face, is known as a spon­ta­neous and com­i­cal fig­ure. The ideas he ex­presses on his paint­ings are of­ten derived from his sur­round­ings, what he sees, and what he ex­pe­ri­ences, from chil­dren toys to sub­jects that are be­ing talked by peo­ple as well.

De­vald Nim­rod Man­ul­lang is a son of an im­por­tant In­done­sian con­tem­po­rary artist, Ron­ald Man­ul­lang. He fol­lowed his fa­ther’s foot­steps on vis­ual cre­ation field by learn­ing graphic de­sign. How­ever, since grad­u­ated from col­lege, he has found his feet in fine arts in­stead. He has been par­tic­i­pat­ing in sev­eral joint ex­hi­bi­tions in­clud­ing an ex­hi­bi­tion in Na­tional Gallery of In­done­sia, Jogja Na­tional Mu­seum, and UOB Paint­ing Award com­pe­ti­tion in 2014 which helped boost his name to fame since he won an award.

Suroso, or Isur, also con­tin­ued his study in ISI Yo­gyakarta af­ter fin­ish­ing Korean Lan­guage pro­gram at Fac­ulty of Cul­tural Science in UGM. His works have been dis­played in a solo ex­hi­bi­tion in Bazaar Art Jakarta 2011. Through­out his ca­reer, he has achieved a plenty of hon­ors, in­clud­ing the main prize of UOB Paint­ing of the Year in 2013 and Asian Prize in Beppu Bi­en­nale, Ja­pan.
