ANTOE BUDIONO

b. 1965 Malang, East Java, Indonesia

Antoe Budiono is a self-taught artist who proves himself through hyperrealism. At the initial stage of his artistic career, he painted daily life objects and later moved on to elevate his skills with human forms.

Antoe’s paintings are not mere imitations or images transferred from photographs to canvas alone.The characters in his works are anything but mundane, depicting an altered reality. Their whimsical facial expressions often portray quirky yet humorous traits. To achieve the ideal chiaroscuro, Antoe adopts a special technique by scraping off part of the paint, revealing the white canvas underneath to bring out the highlights. Although an arduous process, he effortlessly captures incredible details in his works, taking hyperrealism with acrylic to a whole new level.

Antoe is undeniably a man of discipline and patience. His works generally convey philosophies of life reflecting ancient Javanese proverbs – pepatah, which are still being used today.
