We will feature top names and up-and-coming artists, the stars of tomorrow; painters, sculptors, digital, conceptual and performance artists, photographers, land and street artists. Bloomberg TV has covered the globe to talk with these artists in their studios and exhibition points. Through intimate conversations we reveal their Brilliant Ideas.
Heri Dono was born in 1960 in Jakarta, Indonesia. He is one of Indonesia’s best known contemporary artists. Heavily influenced by Javanese “wayang” theatre, comic books and animation, Heri’s works are characterized by his penchant for the fantastical and the absurd, populated by astonishing characters and strange juxtapositions. While ostensibly playful and humorous, his works often contain incisive socio-political commentary on both Indonesia and abroad. He works across a broad range of media, from painting, sculpture, installation to performance. His work has been featured in solo exhibitions around the globe, the most recent being the 2015 Venice Biennale for Indonesia.
