In Entang Wiharso’s work the artist’s own personal experiences are embedded with a strong examination of the predominant socio-political conditions of his home country. To him, creating work is a way of understanding the human condition, of heightening our ability to perceive, feel and understand human problems like love, hate, fanaticism, religion, and ideology.

“I depict the condition of humans who are often divided by complex, multilayered political, ethnic, racial, and religious systems: they co-exist yet their communication is limited and indirect. Figures are interconnected by intuitive as well as intellectual linkages, including ornamental vegetation, tongues, tails, intestines, animal skin patterns, fences and detailed landscapes.“ (Entang Wiharso, 2011).

Entang Wiharso (b. 1967 Central Java, Indonesia) studied painting at the Fine Art Department of the Indonesian Institute of Arts, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. In 2013, he was one of five artists representing Indonesia in the 55th Venice Biennial. He was included in the Prague Biennale 6 in 2014. Important solo exhibitions include the Galeri Nasional Indonesia, Jakarta, Indonesia, Singapore Tyler Print Institute, Singapore, and Kalamazoo Institute of Art, Kalamazoo, MI. He has been included in numerous group museum shows including the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, Japan, Musée d’art contemporain, Lyon, France, the Singapore Art Museum, Singapore and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome, Rome, Italy. Entang Wiharso is represented by MARC STRAUS, New York; Arndt, Berlin and Singapore, Primo Marella, Milan; Bernier/Eliades Gallery, Athens and Brussels; Can’s Gallery, Jakarta, Indonesia and Tang Contemporary, Beijing, China, Hong Kong and Bangkok, Thailand.
