Renungan (just do it)
mixed media on waterproof canvas
Yulianus Yaps (Bali – Indonesia). My legal name is Julianus. My artist name is Yulianus Yaps and signature at my work is Yap HS.
“I was born on September 16th, 1950 in Indonesia. I’d love to draw since childhood and I learned to paint self-taught. My current works is Contemporary Abstract”. When I was a boy I liked drawing very much and my dream will be a painter at the future , when I grow up. Unfortunately, I never got a chance to go to art school. I love fine art very much, so from I was a young boy until I have married and have children I spent many years to learn or study art painting by myself or autodidact. Till the last 1995 I have collect more than 3000 pieces of my works there are sketches water and oil colour paintings. At the end of 1995 there were a disaster (flood) had been hit my house for about two week that had destroyed almost all of my works that I have collected more than 25 years. Since that time I have tried various materials to create waterproof painting. Finally I found silicon rubber as a media to mixed with oil color with exactly composition I created my original waterproof paintings. I love abstract art. For loving abstract art I have spend a long time journey and adventure of imagination. Abstract art gives me freedom to express or to explores in deep the nature inside my soul. Inspired of lines, shapes, unique forms, colours and especially textures with strong and spontaneous those are the characteristic of my works.
Since 2017 I focus to make big painting with one panel 210cm x 100cm, now I have made 30 panels. It means that I have made the painting with size 210cm x 3000cm and this is still go on, I hope at the end of 2018 I will make more than 10000cm long. Everyday I do not get tired of painting to pursue my dreams as a painter despite having to arrive in old age.
