Jumaadi is a Sydney-based Indonesian artist who works across painting, drawing, sculpture, performance and installation. Inspired by the ancient art of Javanese and Balinese shadow puppetry, some of his recent works use buffalo and cow hide which he intricately carves and paints. His practice is informed by the political and aesthetic lineages of his homeland, Indonesia. His work explores themes such as love, conflict and belonging. Jumaadi’s work is featured in numerous public collections across Australia and internationally, including the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Bathurst Regional Gallery, Bega Valley Regional Art Gallery, Halsey Institute South Carolina, USA, Macquarie Bank, National Art School, Sydney, National Gallery of Australia, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney. He won the Mossman Art Prize in 2017.
