Lady of The Roses by Elang Sutajaya
Medium: Acrylic on canvas
Biography: Elang Sutajaya (ElJa), born in 1987, is an Indonesian surrealist
pop painter who can be described as a visual storyteller.
The artist grew up with pop culture influence, such as cartoons, as can be appreciated in his anthropomorphic aviator rabbits, the protagonists of the artist's paintings. With these cartoon characters, Elang's wish is to show how the playful environment of the children's world can inspire the creation of different ways and styles in painting. The artist has created a character inherent in his paintings, "The Aviator", the Flying Rabbit, as a metaphor for human dreams and wishes.
