Born in 1973 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, Oel Gustian paints abstract portraiture and scenes from day-to-day life in Indonesia. With a versatile palette ranging from strong emotive colours to the vibrant energy that embodies the raw nature of Indonesia artists, his works often carry strong political and social messages. His representative portraits often communicate full bodied personalities with simple facial gestures, using almost child-like strokes in unity with a complex melding of hues to create striking imagery that captivates the eye and speaks directly to the viewer's intellectual sensibilities.
