Murai Art Projects
There is something interesting about Murai Art Projects, in October 2022 presenting works from the collaboration of furniture designer Laurence Howell with two young artists. They are Naufal Abshar and Flower Yuridespita. A new approach is when furniture designs that go through a creative process with a three-dimensional product form become the “canvas” for Naufal and Bunga’s paintings.
“This is an art collaboration that has never existed before. By bringing together material technology and appropriate production methods, this time’s initiation produces functional products that have high artistic value. Through Murai Art Projects, this provides a platform for us to continue to support highly talented artists and creative people in Indonesia to be able to produce works that will certainly enrich the repertoire of contemporary art in Indonesia,” explained Yudi Wanandi.

“We as humans continue to dream and pursue wealth and prosperity which later becomes an achievement. Then, we suddenly realize we have missed a lot of important time and moments. It is this thinking that I present in my work for a watch case.” Naufal Abshar explained.
Naufal uses the mixed media he usually works with (paper collages and photography) then digitally prints them onto the ceramic surface with technology from QUADRA and adds scratches with silica-based dyes for his work on the dining table. Meanwhile, for the watch storage cabinet, Naufal also added an image of a skyscraper on the front to strengthen the symmetrical structure and become the visual focus. you can check ianforsythphotographer.com
