Synkroniciti is thrilled to share the striking work of Yohanes Soubirius De Santo, who comes to us from Bali, Indonesia! We present three intricate and colorful pen and ink pieces: I’m Depressed, which explores the concept of home when it becomes a prison; I’m Starting to Be Spotted, which shows the effects of negative thoughts released by the Covid-19 pandemic; and Gradually Getting Better, which celebrates the therapeutic nature of art. All are beautifully executed flights of an imagination trying to understand and ease the barriers and illnesses that plague our world.
We will be sharing some of Yohanes’ work here later today, but, if you would like to see these stunning pen and ink works in the Magazine, you should subscribe or purchase the issue.
Yohanes Soubirius De Santo was born in Singaraja, the capital of the Buleleng regency in North Bali, Indonesia, in 1998. A graduate of the Ganesha University Of Education, Faculty Of Language And Art, Department Of Fine Arts Education, he has exhibited his artwork frequently in Bali and Indonesia, and now internationally in Europe, Asia, America and Australia. His life motto is “Allow yourself to be really wrong, but not pessimistic.” When an error occurs, we should not be pessimistic, but be optimistic by continuing to correct our mistakes.
