Paper Cutting Cupo-Jakarta

Jakarta is the capital city of Indonesia. The city that never sleeps. The city that was now known as with the traffic jam. The city that develops and grow to become the megapolitan city. As other city identities, there are some iconic building or places that can be used to represent this city for paper cutting + painting artwork. For this experiment, I choose to use Monumen Nasional (Monas), Tugu Selamat Datang, Patung Pancoran and silhouette of the high-rise building.

Inktober 2016 from my perspective

Today is November 6, 2016, and it’s been a week after I am finished “inktober2016” event. For you who don’t know about inktober or if you want to know more about “inktober”, please visit this link:

This event is started by Jake Parker ( and open for everyone to join. Anybody can participate and it’s free. Not only artist, painter, designer or anyone that draw a lot in their everyday life. For a month we asked to draw using ink (it can be a fountain pen, pen, marker), minimal one drawing in one day. That’s why it called “inktober”. You can draw anything. Yes, anything. You can draw people, animal, house, car, pets, objects, character, superhero, airplane, your imagination, etc. If you have no idea what you should draw that day, the initiator of “inktober” has some keyword or theme that you can follow (please check the official Inktober2016 prompt list below). If you enjoy making a digital drawing (using tablet or software), you may join too.

CUPO, sebuah utak-atik-gathuk

Mungkin awalnya bisa dianggap sebagai kegiatan iseng untuk mengisi akhir pekan atau untuk refreshing. Melubangi kertas dengan berbagai macam motif atau hiasan kemudian mewarnainya menggunakan cat poster dan disusun menurut urutan gradasi bentuk dan warnanya. Semakin sering membuat, semakin merasa nikmat. Kemudian mencoba merambah bentuk atau tulisan kaligrafi atau motif atau pattern. Untuk saat ini cat yang digunakan masih menggunakan cat poster yang mudah ketika digunakan dan ketika masih ada sisa banyak, bisa digunakan sebagai mainan anak-anak. Mainan yang sederhana, bermain kuas dan warna.
