Ubrux Budi


Born in Yogyakarta, on 22 December 1968.


He studied art at Sekolah Menengah Seni Rupa (SMSR, High School of Fine Arts) in Yogyakarta in 1984. Prior to winning the Philip Morris Indonesian Art Award in 2000, Budi Ubrux was a billboard artist and painter in Switzerland.


Characterized by being progressive and radical, his paintings are powerful satirical, observations on social degeneration through the alarmingly haunting aesthetic of faceless figures mummified in newsprint.


Inspired by the Indonesian government’s transitional period from the “Orde Baru” (New Order) to the “Orde Reformasi” (Reformation Order) in 1999 and its resulting impact on society, his works struggle with the themes of political oppression, the ironic role of the media, and above all, a strong sense of disappointment in prevalent ideologies, and disenfranchisement of the individual.
