Almine Rech is pleased to announce the representation of Indonesian artist Roby Dwi Antono in Europe, UK, United States and Shanghai. Roby Dwi Antono’s stylized portraits of wide-eyed children and mythological creatures recall the works of Pop surrealists Mark Ryden and Yoshitomo Nara. Fusing fantastical imagery with classic Renaissance aesthetics, Antono draws upon themes of heroism, pop culture, and macabre humor to illuminate the contradictions of the human experience. Antono is a self-taught painter and illustrator and has been featured both in Indonesia and internationally in numerous solo and group exhibitions.
Roby Dwi Antono was born in 1990. He lives and works in Yogyakarta.
