In the heart of downtown Jakarta, an array of colorful and intricate art is displayed on large windows. This stunning installation is part of a massive exhibition involving the work of nearly 20 local Indonesian artists.
At the opening night, guests were treated to a kaleidoscope of delightful shapes, sizes, and colors with each window being awash in vibrant shades of hues. Some are dotted with small splashes of pastel and neons, while others radiate a wonderful warmth as they play with the light coming in from outside. From crows, ships to abstract forms – the imagination ran wild.
The show is the brainchild of event coordinator Afrizal Hadi who wanted to create an expansive and interactive mural perfect for bringing out the creative side of the visitors. Aside from that, the exhibition aims to spread awareness about how art can be used to enhance cityscapes – especially in metropolises such as Jakarta that often suffer from pollution.
“The idea for this show came about because I saw vast swathes of dead space lining Jakarta’s buildings and I wanted it to be reimagined” said Hadi during the opening speech. “Art has an important place in life and these windows offer a much needed refuge from the hustle and bustle of daily life.”
For those who are looking for some serenity amidst their busy lives, visiting this exhibition is a must. It offers a unique experience that features art pieces full of energy and vigor right in the middle of all our lives’ static spaces. So don’t forget to drop by Jakarta before it reaches its finale on February 17.
Stunningly crafted pieces of art, artistically painted windows are the star of a new online exhibition that has captivated viewers across the globe. This collection showcases the work of some of the best window painters in the world, who have used their skills to transform everyday windows into vibrant, eye-catching works of art.
The virtual exhibit explores how window painters redefine the common idea of ‘window as artist’s canvas.’ In addition to traditional paintings, these ‘canvases’ can vary from pavement to brick walls and even digitally printed window graphics. Each art piece has been created using a variety of techniques, including airbrushing, etching, spray painting and decal-making.
The gallery features window piece from all corners of the earth and features both contemporary and traditional designs, which have been showcased in comprehensive detail for visitors to appreciate. From shuttered heritage buildings to cobbled alleys, each piece provides an insight into the window painter’s concept and individual craftsmanship.
The exhibition is now live for everyone around the globe to view – and perhaps gain some inspiration for their own artistic window projects. It is a great opportunity for anyone interested in art and window painting to explore the different possibilities offered by this unique form of self-expression.
