Uji Hahan Handoko
Uji Hahan Handoko’s pieces seem to validate the theories declaring that our culture today is indeed shaped by visual culture. Uji Hahan Handoko (Kebumen, Jawa Tengah, Indonesia, 1983) is an artist who explores all visual trends in life; who believes that the visual world reflected in current life style presents itself as a sign of our culture today. The pieces demonstrate his interest in comics, the design world, cartoons, industrial products, posters, MTV, video clips, and even fashion.
The biggest part of Uji Hahan Handoko’s works shows an expression crafted using comic’s visual language. The narration in his works does not employ pictorial sequences as usually found in comics, however. In building a narrative, he activates layers of expressions in place of these sequences. This narration is not limited to how he develops an image. Within it, Uji Hahan Handoko also displays images of comic and cartoon characters that are familiar to the public.
Uji Hahan Handoko’s works are not limited to pictures and paintings. He is also known as an artist who produces pieces that remind us of industrial products. For instance, he would fold his pictorial works (done on cardboard), presenting them as product packaging. He also creates various souvenir-like ceramic figurines.
