Jumaldi Alfi

b. 1972, Indonesia

Jumaldi Alfi is a painter who works sequentially on a set of ideas and themes. Common among these series is the urge for immediacy through the act of drawing, marking and scribbling applied over variations of scapes and scenes, clued by way of elemental aspects such as foreground, horizon and suggestions of space. Alfi’s markings are feverish, shifting and ever-transforming against a tableau that is disconcerting in its fixity and quiet monumentality. This is heightened in his drawings characterised in contrast by the proliferation of figures in various physical and metal state.

Jumaldi Alfi was born on July 19, 1973 in Lintau, West Sumatra. He studied at the Indonesia Institute of The Arts (ISI) Yogyakarta and completed his B.A. in Fine Arts in 1999.
