Born in West Java of Indonesia in 1977, Dadi Setiyadi graduated from the Indonesia Institute of Art and prides himself in creativity, from producing paintings and sculptures to installation works and art projects. His artworks mainly play around with fantasy, science fiction, and art culture. Dadi Setiyadi discovered his interest in the fantastical and mythical world when he was studying the symbol of the Archipelago, where he had a project on Indonesian folklore called “Penelusuran Kisah Nuisantara”. From then on, he was influenced to create a particular syncretism in his works by combining traditional local elements inspired from the environment with modern and contemporary subjects.
