Lugas Syllabus

Lugas Syllabus is a contemporary emerging young artist

from Indonesia. He is widely known for his paintings and

sculptures that address the ironies and contradictions in

modern and contemporary society. Woven into his pieces

are narratives and iconography from pop culture, media,

and technology; coupled with memories and folklore. Taking socio-political observations, he weaves his own

narratives, crystallizes it through his iconography, and

unravels his own contexts of astonishing scenarios,

characters, tensions, and relationships. The viewer

becomes disoriented, unsure of their humor or

gruesomeness, as they are absorbed and settled into the

nebulous logic proposed. Much like the interconnected

world we now live in, his works channel the

hyper-distraction that reflects our current modernity,

making one distracted and fixated.
