“Art is the language of existence of human beings, the funnel of culture and civilisation."
Fatoni Makturodi is an Indonesian artist who is a graduate of the prestigious Indonesia Iinstitute of Art, Yogyakarta. Being inspired by Picasso, Fatoni paints spontaneously in a neo-expressionist and pseudo-naive style. He is known for intricate canvases full of intersecting geometric figures.
While many of his paintings depict normal life in abstraction, Fatoni also collaborates with the Prison Art Programs (PAPs) Collective and is deeply involved in social issues involving the rehabilitation of prisoners through art.
Fun Fact: Fatoni is also a freelance wall decor/mural designer, mostly for hotels.
