Eko Nugroho’s Sculptures and Tapestries Mix Danger and Beauty

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Indonesian artist Eko Nugroho creates sculptures and 2D works that probe the tension between beauty and violence. Nugroho’s life-size resin sculptures of gun-toting human figures in flower suits are unnerving at a first glance. Rebels or enemies in unlikely disguises, these characters elicit a mixed reaction of fear and surprise, even laughter. Combining text and images, Nugroho’s elaborate tapestries put a surreal, folkloric spin on propaganda art. Take a look at some photos of Eko Nugroho’s work by Desi Suryanto and Oki Permatasari below.
