ARTIST INFO

Dyatmiko Lancur Bawono – b. 1975, Indonesia
Santi Ariestyowanti - b. 1977, Indonesia

indieguerillas is an artist collective from Yogyakarta, Indonesia, made of husband and wife Dyatmiko Lancur Bawono (b. 1975) and Santi Ariestyowanti (b. 1977). indieguerillas was founded in 1999 as a graphic design firm. indieguerillas’s philosophy of “constantly in guerrilla to find new possibilities” led them to become full-time artists in 2007. Nevertheless, design still plays a very important role for them. Their design background allows them to explore the use of unconventional media and techniques as a part of their artistic output.

Wayang figures, especially the Punakawan (the characters of Javanese leather puppet jesters), together with popular brands and their visual symbols are the main vocabularies of the visual language of indieguerillas. The hip-hop Punakawan decorated with branded items depicted in their artworks is the reflection of what indieguerillas see as cultural inferiority complex of the Indonesians, including the artists themselves, who claim to be proud and happy to be ‘colonized’ by global consumerism and to be disconnected from their own roots of culture and tradition. indieguerillas often refer to themselves as “the happy victims”.
