AT Sitompul is an Indonesian Abstract artist popular for creating geometric abstractions. Greek philosopher Plato believed that geometry was the highest form of beauty. Geometric abstract artworks are non-objective and aims to convey a sense of simplicity and purity.
Sitompul's imagery swells and vibrates to create an optical illusion. He creates a 'matrix effect’ with a combination of language elements like cuneiform and braille, stark parallel lines, repetitive geometric patterns and open color fields. He adeptly creates dynamic visuals interspersed with static abstraction. It is sheer visual harmony to see the patterns of lines, strokes and language elements all come together to form a beautiful piece of art. The intricate mysteries of his works can draw in the viewer and provide a start to a great narrative.
Sitompul’s inspiration comes from legendary Abstract artists Victor Vasarely, Bridget Riley, Piet Mondrian and Jesus Rafael Soto.
Three-time finalist of the UOB Painting of the year competition, Sitompul participates in many art exhibitions in Indonesia and overseas.
