Since I was a little boy I loved to draw. It was one of my favorite classes at school and my grades were good. But my interest in painting all started at high school when my art teacher, artist Reinier Asmoredjo, invited me to join a couple of lessons at the Sana Budaya Folk Academy, where he also taught art. Unfortunately, the Academy closed and I decided to dedicate myself to my other passion: Thai boxing. For 12 years I was active as a kickboxer and participated in the higher national
competition and sometimes international matches. During my Thai box period, I never lost sight of my interest in art. I visit the National Art Fair and got inspired by artist like Erwin de Vries, Cliff San a Jong, Reinier Asmoredjo and Ron Flu. In 2018 I started with painting again and after visiting the art fair in 2019, I said to myself that one day I will be participating myself and show my art. I am very enthusiastic that this year my dream has come true and I hope this is just the start of my painting career.
