Dhawa Rezkyna

“Life like Art is a canvas with infinite perspectives, colors, questions, thoughts and interpretations”

Born: Solo, 19 June 1991

Education: Institute of Art Solo, Indonesia

Style: Contemporary, Surrealism

Medium: Acrylic on Canvas

About the Artist:
Dhawa is an Indonesian artist who has always been fascinated and inspired by florals. They are his prime muse, which he then juxtaposes with other objects to conceptualize and present his narratives. He uses Plants as metaphors and inspiration for growth, change, setting down strong roots, preserving the old invaluable resources, adapting to new environments, budding with ideas, blooming with possibilities etc.In many cultures, plants are symbols of fertility, prosperity and wisdom as well.
Dhawa's works are visually bright and heartening; however, further pondering can provide perceptive insights that serve as critiques on behavior patterns, emotions, responsibilities, traumas etc and our need to adapt and evolve in life.

Fun Fact:
Beside painting, Dhawa is also active as a freelance illustrator and occasionally does mural work in public spaces.
