Marten Bayuaji

Born in Jepara, March 1992, an Indonesian artist who starts art study in Yogyakarta State University and Bandung Institute of Technology. His practice is much inspired by nature, either in physical form or the idea of nature itself. Marten often uses a variety media in his work, responds to a natural landscape or a specific spatial framing. His outdoor works are ephemeral in nature, a condition in which Marten is questioning about ‘how humans position their natural environment, whether good or bad’. Marten is interested in studying nature in anthropocentrism. According to him, looking back to the most basic things about how we humans perceive nature is very important.
