Wedhar Riyadi

I spent my childhood surrounded by Java’s culture, whilst consuming a lot of television shows including cartoons, sci-fi, horror and action shows, as well as imported comics, anime and manga. When I was a teenager, these fed into hobbies, which were widely influenced by of popular culture, subculture and music.


I am part of a generation that grew up with the development mass media and the Internet, experiencing an abundance of popular images and icons always scrambling for our attention. In my work, I try to channel and incorporate these images and spirits that influenced me as a teen into a range mediums such as painting, drawing, or sculpture, to capture and translate that human experience and environment.
