This May, Kedai Kebun Forum (KKF) invites Bandung Artist, Mufti Priyanka, who works a lot on drawing. At this moment, Amenk packs his exhibition just like the way he presents his drawing works, in the format of rough sketches, full drawings, and free doodling, which represent him as a whole personality at this time.
‘Neurotik djiwo lohjinawi’ is the representation of the way I draw. It is also the way I state my mind freely, and as the mediation to my personal imaginary intuition in describing the personal/public matters which might be happened surround us, even in an ambiguous/absurd ways”, Amenk said (that is how he usually called), explaining the title of his exhibition.
Drawing studies usually been done as part of artistic achievement of an artist. This process might be happened for the rest of artist’s carrier period or might be part of an artwork creation process.
