Roby Dwi Antono is a visual artist based in the wealthy city of Yogyakarta in Indonesia. The municipality, located on the island of Java, has long been described as the "cultural heart of Indonesia," attracting tourists with its classical Javanese performances and international artists with its diverse artistic programs. Antono's studio is located in a suburb of the city. When he is not working on graphic design projects for clients in his creative space, Antono spends his time creating paintings and illustrations reminiscent of the works of pop surrealism founder Mark Ryden and iconic Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara. But Antono fuses the aesthetics of surrealism and classical Renaissance imagery to create a contemporary juxtaposition that is all his own. Antono's paintings often star star starry-eyed children, mythological creatures and, for good measure, pop culture icons he admires, such as Jerry Lorenzo, Tyler, the Creator and Takashi Murakami.
