Wonderland Is Here

Bali Inspirasi.Sanur Bali, 31 January 2019, ARTOTEL Sanur Bali in collaboration with CG Artspace proudly presents a solo fine art exhibition by Indonesian artist; Yani Halim entitled WONDERLAND IS HERE at ARTSPACE, ARTOTEL Sanur Bali.

Wonderland is Here is a world created from the imagination and the mind of Yani Halim who found himself able to do and create whatever he wanted, by displaying 30 works of art, consisting of 15 paintings, 5 sculptures and 10 sketchbooks. The consistency of his works with colorful cartoon figured characters and pleasing to the eyes is a distinctive style that is inspired by reading comics books and illustrations since childhood.

Yani Halim was born and raised in Nganjuk, East Java. He studied and graduated from the Indonesian Institute of Art in Yogyakarta in 1998. Through this exhibition he wanted to present his work, in the form of paintings and objects, after his solo exhibition in Jakarta in 2009. Yani Halim said, Work is like playing by trying to connect everything in yourself with what is seen and felt everyday. The message that he wants to convey through his work is very close to stories from social life or just humor and mild expressions, which are very clearly seen visually in his works.

Goya A. Mahmud, General Manager ARTOTEL Sanur Bali said, It is a pleasure for us to be able to work together with CG Artspace, one of the art galleries from Jakarta to hold a single painting exhibition of one of contemporary artists who has worked for more a decade. This exhibition is the first for CG Artspace and Yani Halim to be held in Bali. Therefore, we hope that this solo exhibition can be enjoyed by Indonesian contemporary art lovers in Bali and especially for ARTOTEL Sanur Bali guests.

This exhibition is curated by Windi Salomo, Art Director ARTOTEL Group, is open for public from 31st January 2019 until 30th March 2019, at ARTSPACE, ARTOTEL Sanur Bali, Jalan Kusuma Sari 1, Sanur Bali.bali inspirasi.
