Southeast Asia continues to be a geographical area of interest for art enthusiasts the world over. As many already know, there isn’t one distinct style or artistic practice that can completely encapsulate or define art from this region. As a world region, Southeast Asia is extremely diverse, and this is amply reflected in the art that comes out from the various countries situated within.
Artemis Art presents a small microcosm of the rich diversity that defines Southeast Asia, through artworks by six young and emerging artists from two countries in the region, Indonesia and Malaysia. With the fusion of strong tradition and modern world influences, two seemingly opposing forces that coexist and continue to shape the region, the art that emerges is simultaneously relevant universally, yet distinctly identifiable as being from Southeast Asia.
Six artists from Indonesia and Malaysia are featured in our third participation this year: Ajim Juxta, Alexandra Hon, Haris Rashid, Indra Dodi, M. Fadhlil Abdi, and Viko Zhijune.
