About the Artwork:
“Nature amazes me by how it provides everything we need to live, even before humans existed. It was a solid form of mountain, sea, forest, and various living creatures before the great buildings and industrial factories were standing up straight.
In return, we give nature waste, polluted water and air, causing thousands of creatures to lose their natural habitat, leaving them in a devastated ecosystem.
I often think about what humans will become after we’re dead, and I’ve arrived at one conclusion. We are coming back to the ground. Also, it reminds me about what I will become when I’m dead. In the end, we come back together with the nature, becoming one with the ground.
We belong to nature, not vice versa.” – Septian Fajrianto
About the Artist:
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.
