Ivan Sagita 伊万·萨奇托 (b.1957)

Born in 1967 in Malang, Indonesia, Ivan Sagita studied at the Indonesian Art Institute in Yogyakarta from 1979-85. He’s known as an introvert and mysterious artist, but his work of art is well known in the world of art.

He uses realistic painting techniques to make unrealistic images. Ivan strives to depict the uncertainties of everyday life, especially as they impact on those who are powerless in the face of poverty and injustice. His work tends to express uncertainties. 

Ivan's subjects are frequently the traditional Javanese people whose life struggles he observed in Yogyakarta.  

Sagita's paintings were selected for the Best Work at the 7th and 8th Jakarta Biennales of Painting in 1987 and 1989, and he was awarded the silver medal at the Osaka Triennale in 1996. His first solo exhibition was at the Duta Fine Art Gallery in Jakarta in 1988. Selected group exhibitions include: The Third Asian Art Show (Fukuoka Art Museum, Japan, 1989); The Seventh Asian International Art Exhibition (Bandung, Indonesia, 1992); The First Asia-Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane, Australia, 1993); The Asian Water Color (National Gallery, Bangkok, 1995); and Modernity and Beyond (Singapore Art Museum, 1996).

印度尼西亚艺术家伊万1957年出生于东爪洼,他曾经赢得无数重要奖项,在国内外的重要学术机构都做过多次展览。
萨奇托是20世纪80年代的超现实主义日惹运动中最突出的艺术家之一。他的作品,如印度尼西亚艺术家Jumaldi阿尔菲解释,与西方超现实主义不同,它不只是艺术的超现实,更是当地状况的写照。人们过着非常现代的生活方式,但仍然相信传统和民间神话的精神主义。
面纱或门帘经常出现在他的作品中,彷佛描绘着某种可能性。从这件作品中透过面纱或门帘进入了另一个世界,超越自我。
