REGA RAHMAN

b.1988

Bandung-based artist Rega Rahman graduated from Bandung’s Institute of Technology in 2012 with a degree majoring in Printmaking. He has since been involved in a variety of art events and exhibitions; with his most recent showcases being “ON’NON” at Space Gallery Jakarta (2016), “LangkahKepalangDekolonialisasi” at the National Gallery of Indonesia Jakarta (2015), and “Beta Test #2, Rega Rahman, The Atomic Bearded Shell” at RuangGerilya Bandung (2015).Rega’s works carry a very distinct, retro style to them; drawing large inspiration from the pop art scene of the 1950s and digital pixel graphics of the 80s. He juxtaposes the mostly lighthearted nature of these two art styles to convey serious themes and messages; creating works that carry a very large sense of duality to them.
