Hestu Wahyuni Erica


Born in Yogyakarta, Java (1971).


Erica started painting in elemetary school, joining a children’s drawing club (Sanggar Katamsi). Later on in her life, she studied in the Faculty of Fine Arts and Design at Institut Seni Indonesia Yogyakarta (Indonesia Institute of the Arts Yogyakarta). At the academy, her instructors were Nyoman Gunarsa, Agus Burhan, and Wardoyo. She received the award for Best Sketch and Best Watercolour Painting in 1989 and Best Painting in 1993 during the campus Ninth Dies Natalies. In that same year, her work was selected for the International Triennale Competition of Painting in Osaka, Japan. She continued her studies in Monumental Art at Sukinov Art Institute in Moscow, Russia from 2001 to 2005. Erica held her first solo exhibition at the Purna Budaya in 1995, officiated by thesultan of the Yogyakarta court, which turned out to be a successful event.


The artist was invited to participate in an exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Moscow, Russia, in 2000. In Erica's works, many subjects are presented on the canvas, representing a compact and crowded arrangement; usually unpretentious expressions of herself and they reflect her experiences and interests. Her art may be childlike, but they are certainly not simplistic. Each work contains interesting narrative qualities, which reveal the worldview of the artist.
