Best of Asian Art celebrates contemporary painters from Asia and offers the opportunity to discover works by exciting artists.
Arie Smit (b. 1916) is an Indonesian citizen from the Netherlands. His vibrant art celebrates the beauty of Bali and its people. His paintings are visually complex and elegant, with a poetic use of colours. His paintings are in several museum collections, particulary the Neka Museum in Bali.
Faizal (b. 1965) graduated from the Indonesian Arts Institute in Yogyakarta. He travelled and participated in several solo and group exhibitions in Amsterdam, France, Kuala Lumpur, Bali, Jakarta, and Singapore. His works are colourful and filled with imaginary and fantasy characters. His works have been auctioned by Sotheby’s and by auction houses in Indonesia.
Herry Dim (b. 1955) is an Indonesian contemporary artist who has held numerous solo and group exhibitions both in Indonesia and around the world. Known as a painter and performance artist, he is also deeply involved in installation and printmaking. He writes essays, some of which were published in the collection Jawinul: Trips in the Woods of Culture (1993).
Sudarisman (b. 1948) graduated from the Arts Academy in Yogyakarta and trained at the Academy of Arts in The Hague (1982 – 1983).
