Riki Antoni was born in Yogyakarta in 1977, as an artist he employs massive, animalistic characters as a central theme in his artworks, these quirky protagonists swathed in a palette of vibrant colours, to establish a paradoxical stance on the country’s political and social climate.
Obtaining inspiration from the realm of the phantasmal, Riki has infused this mystifying theme with his fascination for the proverbial, enabling the artist to create wild new-fangled characters that ironically, possess an inherent shade of humanity that is aptly reflective of the nuances of urbanised, ‘civilised’ behaviour.
