"Artist, Designer, Earthling."
Sat currently lives and works in Bali. His daily routine encompasses making art and other areas of visual design especially product design. Across the gambit of disciplines, we see the common theme of the beach environment.
Academically speaking, Sat trained as a graphic art. In his graphics, the works of Mooi Indie often work their magic into the aspirations he includes in his art. His works often offer a sublimation of the beauty of the sunset entwined with a mixture of other emotions. We see an inclination towards geometrical objects in his work.
Satria often uses found items in his media pallet. Old paper, scraps, bits and bobs and even used construction materials are fair game. For him this is a direct response to the criticism that Mooi Indie is selling beauty. Sat has often made a subtle and more often than not, hidden critique of the impact of tourism in Bali through his works.
– Project Bale (Art jakarta 2019)
“I am predominantly seen as an artist who is using printmaking techniques, such as screenprint and other technical combinations of mixed media, collages, video montage, installations etc. My visual achievements are influenced by simple things as well as my surrounding environment. It is family, friends, music, insights into human nature and my relationship to these things.
For me, art is the practice of freedom both in idea and activity, where it represents the expectations of eternal harmony between humans and nature.” –Satria T. Nugraha
Within his works you are invited to join Satria Nugraha (Sat) on his journey. Never one to leave things well enough alone, he produces striking pieces of art by combining the techniques he has learnt on the ride of his life. Silkscreen printing techniques, spraypaint, drawing and collages are the background in which he and his art traverses. His art is as much of an expression and exploration of the boundaries of the techniques that enrapture him as as they are of the subject matter and his frame of mind at the time of inception. He is as much about landscapes as he is in his anatomical studies each an exquisite example of his need for balance in the shapes and patterns. This juxtaposition of the images, objects and cross-over mediums are essentially illustrating his idea of redefining nature and its relationship with human habit in everyday life.
