Bestrizal Besta - Seeing The Unseen
03 March - 31 December 2021
Besta Bestrizal is an Indonesian artist working mainly with the painting. His works revolve around the themes of humanity, science and art. Bestrizal’s photo-realist approach is grounded in photography where he constructs scenarios that are then processed as digital images that are later manipulated and embellished with elements that enable the artist to further present his moral and personal message.
His works display a mastery of charcoal as a medium, used in a remarkable scale on canvas, with a symbolic, haunting, joyful, mysterious subject matter that can lead to many discoveries.
In some of his paintings, Bestrizal uses splashes of colour coming from flora and fauna:
‘This is an applied metaphor in which I address our contrasting relationship with nature. We are all different, and with our differences, we co-exist interdependently in equilibrium’, the artist explains.
