The artist build a career in the contemporary works of two-dimensional and tree-dimensional for bringing more cartoon characters like Mickey Mouse, the Simpson, Doraemon and Pokemon. Cartoon indeed an inspiration, although it is also the music, which is known to generations born in the 1980s.

“In the current world of contemporary art that is moving fast and dynamically, with such a rich aesthetic vision and almost absolute permissiveness, how do we give 'meaning' to one of the most conventional mediums like painting?” said Alia Swastika, curator of the exhibition.

“Is painting still considered part of contemporary art? What kind of painting is considered to be contemporary? What is not contemporary? Is it necessary to make such distinctions?” said Swastika.

In the Indonesian art landscape, the echo of 'painting is dead' is perhaps not felt strongly because of the market support. However, how do we continue the discussion on painting today? How to put painting beyond the field of visual imagery production, and at the same time not stop thinking about its atmospheric position?

Comic world to build the language of art is a process of taking the popular world as a medium of pure artistic expression. Cartoon world moved into the realistic world with lines and flat colors are reflected in the thick and thin strokes. Pressures artistic still demonstrate the nature of comics as a message in a works.

Riyadi reflect recent developments in the world of comics that do not rely on text to narrate. The pictures almost took all the roles in building the story as in the game camera angles to present a close-up or a long shot.

Narrative borne in graphic objects often overlap. The background was the setting for presenting a different room so it is not linear. Setting taken from the real world as dense settlements in the city of Yogyakarta as an architect designing a house or building with the calculation of human life in it.

A topic comes from personal experience that is memorable and contain the problem then displayed through a simple metaphor translated, but sometimes an idea is not clear and may change at any time. Riyadi paint fuzzy objects such as complete in itself.

Comic world adopted into the concept of flatness of painting opens the emergence of a new style and a technical innovation capabilities. Contextual works with the issues of age, has been created in a variety of media, primarily painting.
