Uji 'Hahan' Handoko Eko Saputro

b. 1983, Indonesia

Uji 'Hahan' Handoko's work is characterised by an ongoing tussle between 'high art' and 'low art'. Blurring realism with decoration, each work illustrates a point of contact that exists between urbanization and agrarianism, the East and the West or between the local and the global. Hahan incorporates film, music and street culture into a distinct visual language where the canvas explodes with bold colours that slip over strong outlines. The colour slippage adds to the sense of movement and spontaneity in what can be described as a topsy-turvy reality.

Is it only a week since Hong Kong? After a blur of skyscraper light shows, bamboo scaffolding, detour signs, cranes and ferries, it’s hard to believe it all happened. For an international art fair rookie (like me) Art Basel Hong Kong (ABHK) was hard to get your head around. Held across two large floors of the sophisticated but sterile Hong Kong...
