Published on the occasion of the art of Budi Ubrux, ‘Beyond The Headlines’ organised by iPRECIATION.
Published, designed and edited by iPRECIATION.
In conjunction with the debut of Budi Ubrux’s solo exhibition in Singapore, iPRECIATION launches Budi’s latest publication, Budi Ubrux, comprising many of his artworks. Budi’s unique style of newsprints motifs questions media information overload and evokes social awareness in the viewers.
As an artist from Indonesia, Budi is especially concerned about the country’s socio-political strife, particularly the Indonesian government’s transition period from the “Orde Baru” (New Order) to the “Orde Reformasi”. Through the use of faceless figures mummified in newsprint, set in haunting, imagined spaces, Budi’s paintings examine the impact of an oppressive political environment on society. Newsprints, in particular, appear as recurring motifs of suffocation and oppression, in contradistinction to the medium’s rightful purpose as the ‘eyes and ears of the people’.
