Bayu Utomo Radjikin

Born in 1969, Tawau, Sabah, Malaysia, graduated from University Technology MARA, Shah Alam,1991 majoring in sculpture. Over the past twenty-two years, he has held nine solo exhibitions and participated in many group exhibitions. A mover and shaker, he is one of the founders of MATAHATI, an art collective formed in 1989. The collaboration started HOM (House of MATAHATI) that flourished into an active art space that host exhibitions, initiating awards, with residencies and art programmes, cultivating a network regionally and abroad. The F Klub was conceptualised after his sojourn in England. As an artist, his list of achievements in sculpture and painting bares experimentations with different media and manifests his involvement in the theatre production. Earlier artworks with expressionistic tendencies later evolved into enigmatic self-portraits and delved the myth of male/ hero archetype. In his large charcoal drawings the physical power the body exudes also reveal an inner spiritual strength orenergy beneath the surface. After his first successful solo show on socio political at The Creative Centre, National Art Gallery, Kuala Lumpur in 1996; Bayu decided to stop producing figurative works completely. He then began a series of abstract paintings. When he was asked on the drastic move, he explained to produce artworks that revolve around social commentary takes too much of him; mentally and physically. Hence why he switched to abstract form in order to express his inner feeling with no boundaries while relieving him from his burden. Vivid colours and bold brush strokes were the essentials in producing artworks expressing an imagined conversation that took place between him and his artwork; his artwork and the viewers. Bayu made a comeback in the discipline of figurative painting in 1999.
