Heri Dono

b. 1960, Indonesia

Unquestionably one of Indonesia’s best known contemporary artists, he graduated from the Indonesian Art Institute in Yogyakarta, where he received the prize for Best Painting in 1981 and 1985. Heri Dono is best known through his installations which are heavily influenced by, and the result of experimenting with, the most popular Javanese folk theatre: wayang. Wayang performances combine a number of artistic and extra-artistic elements - visual arts, singing, music, story telling, along with a mythological story-based philosophy of life, social criticisms, and humour. Dono, who continues to live and work in Yogyakarta, combines humoristic comments through his work on Indonesia's political and social problems.
