Entang Wiharso (Tegal, Indonesia, 1967) is a contemporary artist known for his provocative sculptures and paintings. Inspiration for his work is derived from a combination of his own experiences and references to contemporary culture, Indonesian and Western folklore, and current events. Cartoon human figures recur in his drawings. They are shown dreaming, making love, attacking and defending themselves in tangled landscapes both manmade and natural. His works have been exhibited at Marc Straus at Art Central (2017); Tang Contemporary Art at Art Stage Singapore, Singapore (2017); STPI at Art Basel in Miami Beach, Miami Beach (2016).
““As artists, our function is to grab at the things that are affecting and impacting history.””
