    About the artist

    (automatic translation)

    djunaidi Kenyut's reflects his observation of the urban phenomenon in his daily life onto his works. Walls on the street are some of his major source of visual inspiration today. Perhaps, because when he was young, he spent his spare time as a newsboy on the city street where he found those walls full of scribbles. Some are meaningful, some are really artistic, and some are just one messy corner. But these scribbles speaks a thousand words that later become a strong part of Kenyut's journey as an artist.

    once he finished his formal study in high Surabaya High School of Fine Art (SMSR), Kenyut moved to Ubud, Bali in 2007. The creative synergy that Ubud holds has offer him a chance to do more artistic exploration. Together with his close friend, Anas Etan, he established Bledog Artspace, a non-profit arts gallery that has been used for local or international artist to exhibit their artworks since 2009.

    being part in numerous art activities locally and internationally, Kenyut never stop learning and creating artworks wherever he goes. He held several solo exhibitions and also being participated in some artist exchange such as Malaysia and South Korea Djunaidi Kenyut likes to experiment with different kind of medias without neglecting his idealism as an artist. Currently he is busy preparing his works for Langkawi Art Biennale in 2014.
