Reka Rupa Rasa Illustration Festival
Rupa Rasa: an Asian Illustration Festival presents a curated exhibition of illustrations by 13 illustrators across field of discipline, 10 of Indonesia’s top illustrators showcase their works as the host to our 3 international friends from South Korea, Japan, Thailand, and 2 illustrators of projects on site. In this era of digital revolution, graphic design works have been saturated into society—that people take it for granted as mundane objects in life. In modern Indonesia, where the every day article of life is often sublimated, rarely do we care into pausing and celebrating the ordinary—which is where the danger lies, for visual objects are transient, their aura is fleeting, forgotten once disregarded.
In an era in which the eye became the most important human sense, illustration have evolved very quickly—illustrators multiplied in numbers and gained mass attention and appreciation. But behind its function as merely ‘like’ and ‘share’ generator, it is important to remember the long history of illustration. This exhibition aims to showcase the richness of illustrative form by displaying the process of thinking and aesthetic experimentation, conveying a common message that can be understood by most people. Reka Rupa Rasa Illustration Festival was opened on Friday, 20th of July 2018, officiated by Hanny Kardinata the founder of DGI, graphic designer, and senior illustrator.
