IRSKIY is deep-rooted in Jakarta, Indonesia, having been born, raised; and is also currently based in. He found inspirations for his artistic explorations in the visions of everyday things. IRSKIY has an eye that could catch distinct features in the past and the present, and explore them with an abstractive stylistic choice to unfurl elements of surprise from melding these timelines together.

From the past, IRSKIY often notes and observe specific features in architecture and historical events along with the cultural artefacts that were born out of that history—with a specific recent interest in the 1980s. From the present, he is well aware of popular culture and the media products of his interests in movies, music, and cartoons. On top of exploring the different eras and the contextual discourses it may present, IRSKIY also dabbled in the usage of different fabrics, shapes, lines, contrasts, textures, and at times cartoons.

The past and the present further coagulates in IRSKIY’s medium and pieces, to co-exist with multilayered context and subjectivities that creates a whole new world. The usage of fabrics, shapes, lines, contrasts, and textures, along with cartoons in his more recent work was inspired by the 1980s. These explorations of these new worlds in his artworks unearthed a new perspective and presents a swirl of sweet surprises through defining a sense of figure imbued with a tinge of minimalistic abstract.

Through getting out of his comfort zone, the artistic and stylistic choices IRSKIY made in his latest artworks encourages him to see bigger pictures more than the minute detail. His whole creative process prioritizes strategy, or becoming more strategic, over mere spontaneity. This new way of expression and exploration, which feels like a 180 for IRSKIY had led him to new and exciting discoveries of the creative process, and skills, which brought surprise and pleasure for him.
