Taring Padi artist Mohamed Yusuf

March 25, 2010

I’ve recently returned from six weeks traveling in Indonesia, during which I spent a week with the artists of the Taring Padi cooperative in Yogyakarta, Central Java. I’ll be posting entries for the next several weeks pertaining to aspects of my travels, some art-related, some not. I thought I’d start off with a bit of a bang- a partial photo-gallery of some of the pictures I was able to take of art made by one of my gracious hosts, Mohamed Yusuf (also known as Ucup).


Enjoy more images below!


A detail from a much larger blockprint about the area drowned by Lapindo’s mud volcano, near Surabaya.

Entitled “the Passenger”. Smuggling AK-47’s inside the enormous frozen carcasses of tuna.

This print is about 18 feet long, and maybe 5 feet wide, cut from MDF hardboard and printed on canvas.
