About the Artwork:

“In the past few years, I have found many values that are contained about the flow of life and death, from things that are closely related to what I was learning to. I often think about what the real form of a phase will look like, when we have completed life and meet the next phase, which is the death. Gray, that’s what I met. Where everything feels vague, where nobody, and none of the literacy with valid sources that can tell clearly, what it’s like when we are no longer able to communicate with humans who are still alive.This work represents the anxiety over the shadows that I feel. Will our faith help us later? But, help from what? Will there be a danger that will threaten us outside this life?” – Septian Fajrianto

About the Artist:

(Artist Bio)

Septian Fajrianto was born in late 1991 and settled in his private studio in western Jakarta. He decided to make his career as a professional illustrator in mid 2013. Fajrianto mostly spent midnight as the time for working in commercial and personal projects. His work is much influenced by the scope of Platonic solids, morbid surrealism, medieval Romanticism, also the rich worlds of the esoteric and symbology, which all inspire him to cultivate and regenerate various unique compositions with certain meanings and stories. Fajrianto started out using traditional tools including pens, ink and paper. However, he is now gravitating toward the digital realm, which allows him to explore more than he could using traditional media. Currently, his main focus is on capturing concepts related to underground music within the simple/complex form of visual art.
