Aditya Novali

born in 1978 in Surakarta (Indonesia)

Aditya’s installations invite the viewer to interact with them. ,Aditya's artoworks have been defined as “rotable paintings”. Jim Supangkat
In his works Aditya Novali began developing games' ideas and he finally arrived at a concept of “rotatable paintings” - paintings that are ‘versatile’. The paintings are made out of pieces of wood, constructed into triangular tubes with three surfaces. These triangular tubes are placed parallel to one another (either horizontally or vertically). Each tube can be turned independently. By turning each triangular tube, the audience can choose the images and combination of images painted on the sides. To cater to the public’s choices, Aditya Novali must take into account every compositional combination, that they must all yield pleasing and meaningful results. Nowadays, the question of urban living in Aditya Novali’s works has become even clearer. He uses the concept of rotatable painting to convey a sense of spatial arrangement. In previous developments, his rotatable paintings often depict landscapes. However, most recently, he has used rotatable paintings to convey spatial dimensions in his flats and apartments. Here, urban inquiries can be conceived clearly.
Born in 1978 in Indonesia, Aditya Novali got a bachelor's degree in Architectural Engineering from Universitas Katolik Parahyangan, Bandung, Indonesia. Afterwards, from 2006 to 2008, he did an IM Master of Conceptual Design at the Design Academy of Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Remarkable exhibitions are “Art Portable”, CP Artspace, Jakarta, Indonesia (2004), Deep S.E.A.
