Entang Wiharso in Unseen Art with STIR


Entang Wiharso discusses his general practice, influences, and unrevealed work with Shraddha Nair of STIR.

His new work, Camouflage, employs glitter to create obscure surfaces on large canvases. The medium emphasizes the problem of perception and highlights Wiharso’s turmoil in responding to prejudice and racism in the United States. Camouflage expands on previous work like Eating Identity (2008), the installation Crush Me (2012-2013) and Temple of Hope: Door to Nirvana (2018-19), and the painting Kaleidoscope (2018-19).
