Roby Dwi Antono
Roby Dwi Antono was born in 1990 in Ambarawa, Semarang. Now he lives and works as artist, illustrator and graphic designer in Yogyakarta.He is heavily influenced by masters like Mark Ryden and Marion Peck. Bunnies, monsters, little girls, blood, sweat, tears, anger, all of them are ingredients of Roby Dwi Antono‘s captivating artwork. His work is rich with an elegant and brilliantly detailed executions that simultaneously convey indulgence and careful yet beautiful, restrained control.
Roby is driven by desire to constantly evolve which can be seen in his body of work. The self-taught artist mixes fairy tales, myth or folklore with the painting style of the old masters. But everything he shows and displays is personal using the image of the rabbit as his alter ego. This makes his work appear as if shrouded by mystery, secrets and melancholy. Roby is one of the front runners of pop surrealism in Indonesia.
