Arbi Rangkito

"I live in a small city, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. My inspiration in painting is my experience in the past time, childhood, environmental issues, and nature. My style in painting is expressionism. I also do Plein air painting with expressive style and strong brush strokes to create powerful painting."

Born on the island of Sumatra, young artist Arbi Rangkito (b.1994) cultivates his art painting in Yogyakarta, the art hub of Java known as the capital of contemporary art in Indonesia and home to fine art museums. In his painting, Arbi Rangkito likes to portray memories from his boyhood, his concerns over environment, and sense of pristine nature has charmed many art enthusiasts and collectors through a series of group exhibitions and a solo show, Pacah Tula.
