Although BBuzzArt promotes cutting-edge methodology that brings a paradigm shift in the art industry, it treasures traditional values in art and providing an exhibition opportunity to emerging artists is a way of empowering the new and preserving the old.

Thus, under the name of BBuzzShow, BBuzzArt has been traveling around the world in order to open pop-up exhibition. Starting 2014, BBuzzShow opened in NewYork city, Berlin, Singapore, Shanghai and Seoul and this May BBuzzArt brings BBuzzShow to Jakarta-Indonesia, a country filled with artistic treasures blossomed by multi-cultural heritages. 14 emerging and talented artists have been carefulluy selected for this exhibition from more than 1,000 submissions.

I have felt that creativity has always been part of my life. In my later years this creativity expanded and i studied architectural design, interior design, graphic design, floral art, yoga, and dance. And as my fascination and passion for art continued to grow, it led me to become almost completely self-taught in different mediums by absorbing what i could from books and informal courses but mainly it has been trial and error. My intimate connection with each of my artworks has educated me how to express my inner-self. It is my lifelong commitment to continuously develop my skills as an artist and to encourage and evoke positivity to those that observe my work. More artworks on my instagram : @niwniw_art

Canadian, but currently reside in Jakarta, Indonesia with my husband. Throughout my life, I've always enjoyed looking at art as well as creating art. Recently, I've taken up oil painting as my latest focus. Being born and raised in Malaysia, I am I inspired by cultures all over South East Asia. I love recreating the colourful, detailed patterns seen throughout South East Asian cultures, by adding my own touch to each image inspiring my paintings. I believe that artwork is a great way to express ideas and thoughts. Through my artwork, I hope to showcase the beauty in South East Asian cultures that not everyone may have seen before or appreciate.

Wear scrap materials around it constitute prima behavior. Free to express and experiment with nature is a way of being human. Paintings and drawings Louise use a lot of ink, chalk, charcoal, and cerayon.

Bulbing the blub: INVALID URBAN Visual Art Ensemble Some us call it is special passes as a partly of routinity, the Other do as reflection of chain or a kind of machanistic parallel personification of the daily event accustomed by all surficial things.

But now for all us all that things seems mediocre. . . like back on a shaft understanding of life, and there is nothing exceptional.

I also joined a lot of art groups in Bali , actively participating in joint exhibition events, always taking part in art competitions, in my opinion art is the freedom to create ideas to express a sense of art to any media that can produce art. without being bound to a material not bound to one style or stream of art the most important thing is to be able to put the character of the soul into the artwork that I created. in my artwork I like to paint with bright colors by raising themes that are in the environment around us by giving artistic touches to the artworks.

Mutiabunga is a Balinese artist based in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Born on the 13th January 1995 in Denpasar, Bali. She study Fine Art at Indonesian Institute of the Arts, Yogyakarta. Mutiabunga had been involved in some fine arts competition from childhood to senior high school and exhibition groups in Bali and Yogyakarta. Her work based on concept of sense of the body. Sense of body by which it lift about gestures daily in the context of erotic. In her idea, Mutiabunga dares to making works about erotica but most were still a little taboo in the neighborhood residents who preferred erotica same to pornography. Body is remarkably steal attention on her angle, because language spoken not ensure the truth absolute. But in technical, Mutiabunga using distortion and abstraction visual. Experience erotic gestures is largely was the result of her observations against behavior and lifestyle of the society and doesn’t cover the possibility of the experience feels herself. Mutiabunga trying to observe the body gestures that will bring new ideas to draw. In the practice, she also think how to get artistic vibes in order to bring up the effect an erotica experience. For now she is still exploring more in two dimension, but she isn’t closing it is likely to try in three diemnsions even the four dimensions.

Jakarta born and raised graphic artist. Interested in digital drawing and collage since 2009. Using the image of woman as most of main object to represent my own desires and thoughts. I don’t need to show consistency in my artworks because this life is pretty inconsistent, and I have no interest to please people with some consistent artworks. Sometimes it’s sunny sometimes it’s not. Sometimes I’m happy sometimes I’m depressed. Sometimes I have all these imaginations and emotions and dreams and questions and hopes and sexual desires waiting to be expressed through art, but sometimes I just get bored. And I have explored lots of mediums to finally feel comfortable with digital collage and painting (i will always come back to paper and ink eventually)

*About the Artist (RJP): I’m a young contemporary artist who was born in 1991 from Sragen - Central Java, Indonesia. I'm living and working in the city of Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Currently I’m still active as art student. My art including painting, drawing, illustration and couture. But I more intense work in the medium of canvas. I often work with oil and acrylic paint on canvas. My visual instrumentation tend to work technical and progressive. My art is more commonly known by using multiple techniques of painting such as multiple techniques combined in one work, or can be called the "Hybrid-Technique". I’m a conceptual visual artist. My idea started from empirical experience and I developed with intensive research. The themes of my works are always talking about the physical nature spiritualism, science-technology and eco-phenomenology issues, now-global modern cultural issues, immaterial phenomena, the reasoning of metaphisycal existence, and the world of hyperreality. My art tends to futuristic shades. I always give new innovations in every process of my work, especially in terms of achieving visual. The concept of my arts is the arts for the future of human civilization to be more humanist cultured and art as a means of the most noble education. *ACHIEVEMENTS/ AWARDS: - Best of The Best Painting Artwork of “Anniversary (Dies Natalis) XXXIII” Indonesia Institute of the Art Yogyakarta (ISI Yogyakarta) 2017. - Awarded predicate “The Most Crazy Artwork” on Arts meets Fashion Exhibiton of “PROLETART – GO A HEAD PEOPLE” from the Fashion Art work “The Lordly Heritage” at Bale Banjar Sangkring Artspace, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. - Finalist of 35th UOB Painting of the Year 2016 in “Newcomer” category, 2016. - Awarded predicate "The Most Surrealistic Artwork" in representing the Theme of “(NG)IMPI(AN)” Young Artist Exhibition of (PAPERU) FKY XXVIII 2016 on the visual painting work "Born of Futuristic Embryo" at Taman Budaya Yogyakarta, Indonesia. - The Best Artist Finalist of “Anniversary (Dies Natalis) XXXII” Indonesia Institute of the Art Yogyakarta (ISI Yogyakarta) 2016. - The Best Artist Finalist of “Anniversary (Dies Natalis) XXXI” Indonesia Institute of the Art Yogyakarta (ISI Yogyakarta) 2015. - Featured Special Artist of ”REFLEXE #2 ”LENZ DIE AUS STELLUNG”, Germany. - The Third (3rd) Best Winner of National Drawing Art Competition “PANORAMA INDONESIA 2013” at the National Gallery of Indonesia (Galeri Nasional Indonesia/ GNI), Jakarta, Indonesia. - Art Nomination for the Best Painting 2012 & 2013 of Indonesia Institute of the Art Yogyakarta (ISI Yogyakarta), Fine Art Program Student. - The Best Illustration Art in 2013 & 2014 of Indonesia Institute of the Art Yogyakarta (ISI Yogyakarta), Fine Art Program Student. - The Best Acrylic Painting 2013 of Indonesia Institute of the Art Yogyakarta (ISI Yogyakarta), Fine Art Program Student. - The Best Poster Painting 2012 of Indonesia Institute of the Art Yogyakarta (ISI Yogyakarta), Fine Art Program Student. *PUBLIC COLLECTION (Art Institution/ Foundation): - Indonesia Institute of the Art Yogyakarta. - National Gallery of Indonesia. - Bentara Budaya Yogyakarta, Indonesia. *BUSINESS CONTACT: - HP: (+62) 838 4022 6684 - ID Line: rjpimaginartion - Email: ranggajalupamungkas@yahoo.com - IG: rangga_rjp

My Career: I am a fine artist originally from Padang, West Sumatra, Indonesia. I graduated from Indonesia Institute of Art (Institut Seni Indonesia) Yogyakarta with a major in Painting in 2006. For me, creating art is an expression of my soul, born from my aesthetic experience. With each new work, I strive to use my technique and vision to make an impact on the evolution of art. My work has also been included in exhibitions at Cheim & Read Gallery in New York, Siena Art Institute in Siena Italy, and The National Art Museum of China in Beijing, as well as other locations internationally. My Story: Many years ago, my father was the headmaster of a local school and he occasionally taught mathematics to the students. When I was young, maybe three or four years old, I would sometimes spend time with my father in his classroom at the school. I always ran to the blackboard to grab some chalk and began drawing with it. I was mesmerized. Above, my father was focused on delivering his lesson, with equations strewn about the blackboard. Below, there I was with my chalk and a focus of my own. Occasionally he would break his focus as the older students looked on and chuckled at me. My father recognized my artistic abilities early on and always supported them. He sought out information on how I could further my education in art locally. One of our neighbors had a daughter who studied dance at a performing arts school. Through that, my father was able to find out that there was a fine art school in that same area. My father knew nothing other than the location of the school. The most poignant moment for me, in my development as a career artist, was the day that my father went with me to register for that senior high school. It was nearly two hours away, by bus. It was only the beginning of my journey, but even then I understood that art would always be my life. I carry this inspiration and drive with me daily and put it into each new painting that I produce.
