The Gate to the Past

Artist: Seto Parama Artho, Indonesia
Artist Statement: Kotagede is a historic area in the city of Yogyakarta in Indonesia. Inside we can see many traditional and old buildings, quiet life, quiet alleys, silversmiths, relics, sites of the Islamic Mataram kingdom. Everything is present in the mystical and mythological atmosphere that cannot be separated from the spirit of life of the people of Java. I really like Kotagede and always want to be present in it. For me Kotagede is an oasis in the midst of modernity.

MEDIA: Pen & watercolor
SURFACE: Delta Series – Extra Heavyweight – 270 gsm – Ivory – Cold Press Finish

I have loved sketches since I was in elementary school. Wherever I go I always carry sketchbooks. I love to walk especially to the old towns and take the time to sketch. Old towns have always been an inspiration for me in working and reflecting on life.
