“As an artist with a lot of empirical experience and intellect, Dedy uses emotional depth and intellectual strength to borrow images he encountered in the world of children, the spirit of emotion, and intuition, and expresses them artistically with technical prowess.” – Rusnoto Susanto
Herein lies a strong composition of intertwined words and symbols. His works are described as radical and dynamic, also distinctive in expressive style and abstract execution. It is undoubtedly powerful in both visuals and meaning. The artist seeks to explore the borders between discipline, words and imagery. He is the creator of a unique hybrid artistic language and he uses this language to evolve his subject matter with more freedom. All in all, this piece is impactful, direct and filled with honesty.
Dedy was born in 1976, and began his artistic journey in Jogjakarta in 1995 and started exhibiting his work when he was only twenty. His works gained critical acclaim and interest, and this led him to winning many awards.
