Lukman

Lukman

Lukman’s inspiration comes not only from his uncle, but from other Indonesian painters such as Fajar Sidik, Nyoman Gunarsa, Nyoman Erawan, and worldwide famous painter, Pablo Picasso. These artists developed his taste for the abstract while guiding some of his artistic decisions like choice of colour and compositions. Lukman’s works are heavily influenced by Indonesia’s traditional performing arts, Wayang Kulit (puppetry). Driven by his fervent, impassioned brushstrokes and a deep understanding of the interior tapestry of psychological states, his works combines the traditional Javanese experience with an abstract expression. Lukman’s lyrical use of the recurring motifs of nature and Javanese architecture is an indication of his upbringing and art education. His painting processes are often born out of spontaneity and based on his life experiences.

Lukman

Born in Cilacap, Central Java, in 1982, Lukman began to explore his passion in painting during his childhood years. Lukman’s uncle, Nasirun, is a well-acclaimed artist in Indonesia and works out of Yogyakarta. Not only was Nasirun family, he was also Lukman’s inspiration, support system, and person whom he had learned to paint from. He also encouraged Lukman to explore and continue to develop his skills in painting, by suggesting his enrolment at The High Schools of Fine Arts (SMSR) in Yogyakarta. After graduating from SMSR, Lukman continued his education at the Indonesian Institute of the Arts, Yogyakarta. It was after this chapter in his life that he decided to become a full-time artist, living in Yogyakarta.
