EXHIBITION INFO

Erica Hestu Wahyuni was born in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, on 1 January 1971. Since she was a young girl, Erica had always loved to draw and paint. Later on in her life, with the support of her art teacher, she managed to enter the Indonesian Fine Art Academy. At the academy, among her instructors were Nyoman Gunarsa, Agus Burhan, and Wardoyo, and it seemed that Erica finally found her world. In 1993, her work was selected for the International Triennale Competition of Painting in Osaka, Japan. Erica was invited to participate in an exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Moscow, Russia, in 2000. Erica’s paintings are usually unpretentious expressions of herself and they reflect her experiences and interests. Her art may be childlike, but they are certainly not simplistic. Each work contains interesting narrative qualities, which reveal the worldview of the artist. Erica’s naive, playful renditions have ascertained her reputation as one of the most sought-after contemporary artists in South East Asia.
