Street Art 3

If you walk through the so called ‘colored area’ in our village you will see somewhere a beautiful door with a brass knob and with a step in the front. This is where carpenter Slamat lives. He is as he says himself ‘a hobby painter’ and in his spare time he decorates houses in his neighbourhood with birds and flowers; just because people love to have these. Just occasionally it happens that somebody wants to have a different object such as a beetle or a cat. During the event Viva Art Fest yesterday we bumped into his front door. It’s a folly. “I always like to fool people a bit”, he laughs … The second picture is that of a painting on his house he’s still working on…


The object

One may call it art or not. Whatever; we like it. Indonesian born artist Sam Siyahaya painted this rock for us 10 years ago during his stay at our place. This year he returns and he intends to do the finishing touch. We are looking forward to his arrival next month and will keep you updated.
