About Me.

Mutiara Riswari was born 1998 in Semarang, Indonesia. She studied at School of art Yogyakarta (2013-2016) and continued her study in Indonesian Institute of Art Yogyakarta on 2016 and finished her study on 2019. She currently lives and works in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

In her creative process, she inspired with 'Jagat Alit' terms (Javanese philosophy) as a base of her artworks. 'Jagat Alit' (microcosm) explains about connection, that humans are a form of a small universe that is interconnected with the Big Universe (macrocosm). 


Technically, many of her artworks are play with acrylic and pastels, which have always been a medium of her childhood. Her characteristic abstract patterns reflect an imaginative response to reality object. Through several phases, her inner child attached to each process. This is what encouraged Mutiara to develop her work, to connect imagination with reality. These time relations made Mutiara's consciousness focused on psychology. 


Through her transition journey, from time to time and from one place to another, she concludes that the fundamental thing is awareness. For her, an artwork is also part of the jouney for everyone who sees and creates it.
