U g o   U n t o r o

Ugo Untoro is an artist who is very observant and persistent in dealing with the issue of what art means to himself. He is always intensely examining his internal problems as well as problems in society, boldly offering his own viewpoints that are often unconventional, mischievous and intelligent at once. He often manages to reveal his profound pondering on a given issue. After making a number of paintings with horse as the as protagonist figures – or the personification of himself – he accomplished a project of complete multimedia installation, ‘poem of blood” comprising drawing, painting, installation, video art & sound art which shows Ugo’s boldness and intelligence in always breaking free from existing definitions of art.
