Anjastama is an artist from Indonesia, born in Sukoharjo, Central Java, January 29th, 1996. He has completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts education at the Indonesian Art Institute in Yogyakarta.
Anjastama was born and raised according to the Javanese tradition, which maked him more interested in his culture, but he has a challenge how to translate that culture into something beautiful, unique, and acceptable to people who are not from Java. In his work, he transforms the traditional Javanese puppets into a human form, and combines his personal feelings into his work. In this way Anjastama creates his own world. The subjects he paints are inspired by the 3 children of Bima and are so called wayang characters.
The first character is Antasena, son of Bima and Urang Ayu (the daughter of the kingdom of the ocean). The second character is Antareja, Bima' s son with Nagagini (the daughter of the Snake King) The last one is Gatotkaca, the son of Bima with Arimbi (the daughter of the king of giants) These three characters have inspired Anjastama to created a world with these three characters. they are not only very strong, they also have the souls of warriors who are able to give up their lives to destroy the wrath of anger.
