Septian Harriyoga is an artist born in Jakarta in 1977. He currently resides in Bandung, West Java. He completed his education at the Sculpture Department, Faculty of Art and Design, ITB in 2004.
His sculptures are made from andesite stone, steel, aluminum, and duralium. He places great emphasis on the process of creation, an important aspect of the workshop/studio tradition. He very much enjoys the process of cleaving stones, cutting duralumin, shaping them, smoothing and polishing them. Thus, his sculptures appear highly refined, but at the same time still playing with many form-related associations. In addition to sparking a variety of interpretations, these forms become part of Septian’s explorations into kinetic art, a genre that is currently drawing the interest of Indonesia’s contemporary artists. Light and levi- tated forms, and forms replete with curves but devoid of angles; they imply that certain forces are at work in his sculptures. In addition to creating sculptures, Septian Harriyoga also creates photographic works to strenghten his sculptures.
Pullman Hotels and Resorts has an incredible commitment to design, art, photography and local culture and collaborates with artists and designers around the world to help bring its design vision to life.
A real need has been identified to facilitate the implementation of arts within the hotels, that is why the “Artist Playground” program has been created as a new initiative intended to add elements of local interest, culture intrigue and visual ingenuity to the hotel’s communal space.
