Trisno Adi Wirawan

Trisno Adi Wirawan started his journey with expressionism, but an excessive jolt within has catapulted him into the world of abstract. He believes that abstract is the yoga of art, when the honest thoughts are explored within and channeled through his hand. His works are now displayed at Denpasar Art Space until May 13.
Briefly about your art journey.
I started studying arts formally at the High School of Arts in Batubulan, followed by a bachelor degree at Ganesha University in Singaraja where I majored in art studies. Following the curriculum, I learned several forms of art. I then decided to focus on painting for my final project, and I started with expressionism. As time went by, I found myself unsatisfied with this style. I continued to channel this excessive energy onto my canvas, and I found these abstract elements. Since then, I knew that I had found my comfort zone in abstract.
So abstract has become your true identity.
It’s not exactly like that. Until now, I still have anxiety in my art life. I feel like I have to keep creating and creating. In fact, each artist must have their own anxiety. If there is no anxiety, how would we pour the idea into our medium? Either it be painting, graphic or sculpture.
What is your concept in creating art?
My concept cannot be separated from my own problems; it’s about what I meet in my life journey as an individual and as an artist, as well as a Balinese who also cannot be separated from the cultural values of Bali. However, I don’t explicitly and openly present the Balinese symbols in my works. What I’m showing is the spirit of Bali itself. Meanwhile, my art is now more into minimalist abstract as I frequently use basic colors like red, white and black.
Tell us about your works at Denpasar Art Space.
For the works in this exhibition I’m interested in presenting ladders as the objects of my concept. I create them as lines that seem to form a rhythm. Then I also put a few pieces of text that can be easily interpreted into certain words. In addition to my artistic needs, it’s made to reinforce my ideas about my life and my personal journey.
