Bestrizal Besta

born in 1973

Besta Bestrizal is an Indonesian artist working mainly with the painting. His works revol- ve 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 na- ture. We are all different, and with our differences, we co-exist interdependently in equilibrium’, the artist explains.

Born in 1973, Padang, Indonesia. Living and working in Yogyakarta
