“I will pursue art until the end of my life, because it is a gift from God that was given since I was born. Art is a part of my life.”
- Taufik Prawoto
In the midst of the pandemic that hit Indonesia, Taufik Prawoto, an artist based in Jakarta, enthusiastically holds his solo exhibition in Ancol, Jakarta. However, even though he hoped that this exhibition would bring many new collectors from his area, the activity must be postponed due to the government's emergency restriction in preventing the spread of the Covid-19.
This open studio activity is a collaboration between the artist born in Pati, Central Java, and L Project in a series of events called Indonesia Art Expo 2021. Not only does Taufik who has to stop his activities temporarily, some other participants who live in Java-Bali areas also have to return in selling online rather than sold their artworks physically at their own respective studios.
