Alberto Piliang, born in Bandung, Indonesia, currently lives and works in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. He mostly works with ink on paper and is inspired by classic Japanese ukiyo-e and Art Nouveu, but with more surreal twist.
Alberto explains the work by saying, “My work is my device to express my view to this world, which is a little bit cynical”.
"While very dark and sometimes disturbing, I found his black and white work to be very complex and deep. I saw a dark humor in them and did like the strange and scary characters. One of the images had a masked woman walking with a psychedelic clown. The woman had her skirt pulled up a little to reveal a koala bear on her leg. How do you come up with that?"
