Oky Rey Montha
Oky Rey Montha (Yogjiakarta 1986) is an artist who grew up on the streets. He faced cruelty in his childhood home; left it when he was young. Since then, he went through the motion of surviving; doing what needed to be done to live and to pay for his education. As he grew up, he began to get acquainted with ‘punk’, then immersing himself in the music scene, as a drummer.
From early on, his harsh life led Oky Rey Montha to become acquainted with the concept of picture diaries. In these diaries, he noted down all his anxieties in the form of pictures. He obtained his drawing skills from his fondness for comics, especially dark comics. His skills led him to the art institute and he became an artist. Through his works (drawings, paintings, digital works, and three-dimensional pieces), he feels that he is now able to present various stories of his hard life’s journey—an everlasting source of ideas and inspiration. Expressions stemming from personal experiences lend a chaotic notion to his works, devoid of any point of interest. Expressive imageries full of parody demonstrate a critique against authority, rules, convention, injustice, establishment, and domination.
