Alfi Jumaldi (b. 1972)

Alfi Jumaldi was born 1972 in Lintau, West Sumatra, Indonesia. After studying at the Indonesian Institute of Arts in Yogyakarta in 1999, he co-founded and became a member of Jendela Art Group, a prominent contemporary artist collective. Most of the members were experiencing the early phase of their careers, creating work which surprised art audiences in Indonesia  as the subject matter were far removed from socio-political themes and realistic painting. Instead, the Jendala Art Group showed inclination for extreme naïvism in the form of meaningless ‘doodles’ or formalism – that was also extreme – by drawing exclusively on minimal visual elements of line, color and texture. In 2010, he co-founded the Artists Collective, Office: For Contemporary Art International in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. He lives and works in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Alfi Jumaldi was nominated for the 10th Indonesian Art Awards (2003, Finalist) and the 5th Indonesian Art Awards, The Best Painting Awards, Indonesian Insitute of Art (ISI), Yogyakarata, Indonesia (1998, Finalist). He currently lives and works in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
