Momento Mori, Now – 19 December 2017, Balai Soedjatmiko Solo
As a creator, Nanang Yulianto expresses the constant dialogue he has with his higher self in his paintings, picturing the abstractions and realities of his soul. This process allows Nanang to have a complete freedom in creating his works. To continue the process, Nanang starts to interpret the strokes he created and found a deeper understanding of his own self, his life, and his purpose as a creator. Momento Mori is a reflection of Nanang Yulianto’s soul. Through his works, Nanang invites members of public to use them as part of their own reflections of their lives. Momento Mori is exhibited in Balai Soedjatmiko Solo until the 19th of December 2017. For more information, click here.
