Rujiman was born in 1975 and graduated from the School of Fine Arts in Yogyakarta. He currently stays in Indonesia. Known as the 'Koi Fish painter', Rujiman's abstract oil paintings are heavily impasto-ed, which adds great energy to his subject matter. He transfers the movements, color schemes and implications of Koi fish from his memory onto canvas using a pallet knife, and captures a style that spans abstract to semi-abstract to Impressionism. The artist has shown much cultural achievement as a fish painter and is skilled in connecting aesthetics with Asian philosophy. He is highly recognized in Indonesia and is rapidly gaining popularity for his style.
