Wedhar Riyadi

b. 1980, Indonesia

Wedhar Riyadi was born in Yogyakarta, Indonesia in 1980.  

Riyadi is part of the generation that came to maturity during the late nineties period of political reform in Indonesia.  In his art, he explores the psychological connection that symbols have in popular culture, in turn creating fantasy worlds that seem playful yet disturbing in their distorted familiarity. Riyadi's artistic style is reminiscent of contemporary street art, graffiti and comics.
