Details: original illustration of Membakar Jakarta (Burn Jakarta) for Carlsberg Project, 2014 You and Ykha Amelz recently had an exhibition called Carlsberg Project at WAGA Studio & Gallery, would you mind to tell us the stories behind the project? “Hashtag Now Playing” exhibition is one of the many project proposals chosen by ‘Carlsberg Project’. Ykha and I came up with this idea, which is very simple really, of how music can give so much inspirations for visual arts. Both music and illustration influence each other. This exhibition is our form of appreciation for local musicians who have inspired, not only me and Ykha, but also individuals in general. Who / what is your greatest visual inspiration? Alphonse Mucha, Gustav Klimt, Aaron Horkey, Moebius, Richey Beckett... and, of course, women :) What do you do when run out of ideas and get stuck? Usually I would step away from whatever project I was doing and I would try to draw something from my mind or anything in sight. When all else fails, I just go out and see my friends.
