As one of Indonesia’s most sought after Contemporary artists, Masriadi has rapidly been gaining international recognition. Influenced by Indonesian street culture, as well as the computer gaming culture that he is heavily involved in, Masriadi consistently produces some of the most striking and detailed paintings emerging from Asia. Through his highly stylized paintings Masriadi displays his impeccable wit and humour. His works have earned him the admiration of the international art world.
Masriadi’s works have been exhibited in museums and galleries in Paris, Moscow, Bali, Yogyakarta, Singapore and Dordrecht. He held his first solo exhibition entitled Masriadi: Black is My Last Weapon at the Singapore Art Museum, in 2008. (bio)

Thanks Sabina, delighted you follow our Artist posts closely!
I like his work so much. I just found out about him but it seems that Asian artists are becoming more influential: http://rottendurians.blogspot.com/2011/09/art-hk-director-shares-insights-on.html I don’t think we see that because the buying is done in Asia and our museums don’t reflect the current global art market all that well.
We do our best to post artists from the world over here on Escape, we’re happy that you appreciate that. – Carrmelita
