Known for depicting the ordinary, simple life occurrences and his own artistic conscience into something majestic and inspirational through impressionistic and expressionistic styles, S. P. Hidayat believes that his painting should have the ability to emotionally connect with his audience. He also believes that expression is the greatest gift a human can have and he shows through his artworks – by not depicting them in a common, objective way, but in convoluted one, as they swim in their own complexities and secrecies.
This artist has a gift for having great sensitivity towards his surroundings, elevating a common sight into something deep and emotionally contemplative.
S. P. Hidayat was born in Indramayu, West Java. He studied at Indonesia Art Institute (ISI) in Jogyakarta, majoring in Fine Arts, where he was awarded the Best Oil Painting award. His first publication, “The Best Collection of S. P. Hidayat was voted one of the Best National 100th finalist Phillip Morris.
