This papercutting+painting is specially made and dedicated to someone that become my rock idol, that respect for his abundant positive energy that he shared in many online/offline platform. He is Gary Vaynerchuck. He was known as Gary Vee. If you just know or read or heard Gary Vee, just googling him. You will easily find him anywhere. His achievement is solid proof that he is the man who just does the work and he lives what he preaches.
There is always a first time, for everything. The mixed feeling will fill our mind and our heart related to the journey through that first time moment. We may feel nervous, excited, worried, afraid, happy and so on. Including with the story that I want to share you now. The big themes are “for the first time”. It’s the first time for me visit Tanjung Pinang, the capital of Bintan Island to install and activated the first ActiveSite solution for Indonesia market.
Philips Lighting Indonesia as a multinational company has the official batik shirt that represents the company with batik Indonesia pattern, with two color option, white and purple. As the employee, I am proudly wearing this batik shirt, especially when business trip abroad. The response from my colleagues is amazing. Most of them love the batik and ask how to have or buy that Philips batik shirt. But then, I ask myself, what is after batik shirt? And to be exact, how to describe Philips Lighting Indonesia in one image. The image that can be applied as identity, ornament or perhaps can be applied as the gift to our guest or customer. Read more
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.
Previously, I had created paper cutting +painting with The President theme. The first is Cupo-Gus Dur, or the formal name is Abdurrahman Wahid, he was the 4th President of Republic of Indonesia. The second is Cupo-Obama, as we know that he was the 44th President of United States of America.
Now, I made creation again with President theme. This time is not the president of a country but from a company. He was the President Director of Philips Lighting Indonesia. His name is Chandrasekhar Vaidyanathan. This project happened because the request of Professional Lighting Channel team that want to present a memorable gift at the farewell party of Pak Chandra on March 24, 2017. He will move from Indonesia to China as Regional Business Leader for Greater China and India. He was the Country Leader of Philips Lighting Indonesia from October 2013 until March 2017.

This event is started by Jake Parker (mrjakeparker.com) 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.
Let’s call it Cupo-FKM. FKM is the initial name of this girl that her photograph made as an object of paper cutting and painting. This is the custom request from a customer that initiate to give a different gift as a birthday present. Also, request to give pink gradation and pink wooden frame. FKM is 4yrs old girl who lived in Paris.
The experiment of paper cutting to make a transition from the simple square shape and make color gradation for each layers using some color spectrum.
On this project, we are trying to maximize all layered that already cut. As you know, when we cut the paper, it will create 2 shapes. Sometimes we call it positive and negative shape. This project made on September 30, 2014.
This artwork is called Cupo-BAP and made from a photograph of our beloved colleague that resigned from the current job. BAP is the initial name of our colleague, Bayu Ade Pramudia. The hardest part of this creation is found the good photograph without asking the photo from him because this artwork was made as a secret project.
