This abstract work by Indonesian artist Dedy Sufriadi challenges viewer’s notions of what is considered art. Featuring an earth-toned colour palette, the canvas is filled with child-like symbols and scribbles that are difficult to decipher, while on the lower left corner the words “isn’t art” appear. While the painting appears simplistic, it is Dedy’s deliberate aim, which is achieved through his skilful artistic techniques and awareness of composition, colour and brushwork. The work is dynamic and captivating, and is striking in its directness and honesty - leaving a memorable impact on all who view it
