Ade realizes that some people are still waiting for a reply on their emails, but due to hectic times making all the arrangements and due the amount of emails he recently received, he’s still busy catching up. So thanks in advance for your patience!

When Ade is opening up his new schedule with bookings for in the shop in Eindhoven he will announce this on his Facebook or contact you by email.

First he will take a well deserved, small break in his homeland before he will start working in the new shop starting from February 2017.

So more news about this in the new year!

 


 

In the meanwhile, requests for bookings in Eindhoven can still be send to:  thisis369@gmail.com please include all relevant information.

APPOINTMENTS
Emails in English please! I am originally from Indonesia, so you can write me also in Bahasa Indonesia but i will reply in English to make it easier.

Make sure you gave me enough details concerning your project:

  • telephone number
  • explain your idea (any specific ornaments / symbols that you want to incorporate?,¬†please send along any reference images you have, that you think will clarify your idea.¬†I want to draw¬†something by your guidelines, but I will advise you on what I think will work well or possible other options for your tattoo that will make the design better).
  • possible placement(s)
  • size (hand / palm size or cm)
  • reference images (examples of my work you like in style / details)
  • a clear, recent photo of the body part to be tattooed
  • in case of a cover up / continuing an old piece – a clear, recent photo of the tattoo(s) you already have

Those that have all that info in their¬†initial email generally get booked first. If you haven’t added this info,¬†do it now and add it as a reply to the email you originally sent. I’m easily¬†confused, so a continuing thread is much easier.

Due to the amount of messages I get a day, I’m not able to respond right now.

It usually takes me 1 (up to 4) weeks to respond to emails due to the volume of emails I receive.

Please do not send multiple emails (I don’t take any requests by Instagram / Facebook)

CALLIGRAPHY / MONSTER INK VENRAY

calligraphy_2

 

As I mentioned in the previous post, a while ago when Ade was focussing and learning about ancient scripts, writings and calligraphy and after a lot of try outs, Ade created his own ‘calligraphy’ based and inspired on old, ancient scripts, like Hanacaraka and the Balinese script. He offered a customer to incorporate some of the writing in a tattoo design and after that more¬†people picked it up and followed.

Lately Ade gets a lot of requests about his calligraphy designs. What people not always know is that it’s possible to translate almost every text or sentence into a calligraphy design (as long as it’s not too long). The fact that the ‘calligraphy’ is not always clear to read in one hit, makes it a nice for people who want to get a text done but don’t have the wish that everybody can read it, to make it more personal. To not give away too much of the ‘spirit’ behind these tattoos, if you’re interested you can contact Ade on¬†thisis369@gmail.com¬†for more questions and explanations.

BALI – SETIA DARMA / HOUSE OF MASK & PUPPETS

Setia_Darma_8

The second highlight of our trip through Indonesia we like to tell you more about is the Setia Darma, House of Mask & Puppets museum in Ubud, Bali.

2 years ago we already had the plan to visit this museum, but at that time we couldn’t find the place¬†and due to some¬†unlucky¬†circumstances on the way we had to return to our¬†hotel. So this year we wanted to give it another try!

Setia_Darma_1 Setia_Darma_2

Setia Darma, The House of Masks and Puppets was initiated by Mr. Hadi Sunyoto, a businessman and cultural enthusiast, who has been collecting masks and puppets from different regions in Indonesia for the past seven years. Concerned with the lack of appreciation and awareness towards the disappearing traditional art form of masks and puppets in Indonesia, he decided to create a space to collect, preserve and spread the knowledge of the art form of masks and puppets. As a result, the House of Masks and Puppets was built in 2006.

Setia_Darma_3

They’re mission is to inspire people to learn about the culture of the past for the benefits of the present and future life. And to conserve the art form of masks and puppets from different regions of Indonesia, as well as from other countries.¬†The collection of the House of Masks and Puppets currently consists of approximately 6900 items, of which 1300 are masks from Indonesia, Africa, and Japan; whilst the other 5700 are puppets from Indonesia, China, Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, and Cambodia. Although the House of Masks and Puppets has several objects from other countries, the collection mostly consists of items from various regions in Indonesia.

Setia_Darma_5

The collections of the House of Masks and Puppets are housed in four different traditional Javanese antique houses or commonly known as Joglo. These unique Joglos are mostly originated from East and Middle Java.

 

Setia_Darma_4

We can say, this is one of the most amazing museums we have ever visited. A breathtaking collection of masks, perfectly conserved and displayed. We were actually a bit surprised that we didn’t need to pay an entrance fee to enter this museum. (We we’re¬†completely willing to put down 200.000 IDR. if needed to see this collection up close). There even was a¬†worker of the museum¬†who gave us a little tour through the museum and¬†told us more about the different sort of masks and their origins. This is definitely the place to be if you’re interested in masks & puppets from Indonesia and Asia in general!

YOGYAKARTA – KI SUKASMAN / WAYANG UKUR

Our 2 month trip / vacation to Indonesia is slowly coming to an end and we will return to The Netherlands soon full of new energy & inspiration! A good start of the new year! In the past few weeks we went on a inspiration-hunt and we have made several small trips through Indonesia, we have visited many temples and several museums. We would like to tell more about ALL of the beautiful places we have visited but we decided to just highlight the best of them!

On our first trip to Yogyakarta, we searched for the story behind a unique artist called Ki Sukasman. Which Ade heard about a couple of years ago and felt that there was some resemblance in the way Ki Sukasman is creating art and the way he is makes his designs. So off we went!

Ki Sukasman – Wayang Ukur

Ki Sukasman

Ki Sukasman was a¬†66-year-old artist (he passed in 2009) from Yogyakarta who devoted all his life to wayang, the art of leather puppetry. What distinguished him from others was his view on the ‘traditional wayang’. A bit more about him and his artworks you can find in a long interview hold by¬†The Jakarta Post in 2003.¬†

Sukasman has made a name as the creator of Wayang ukur, a new style of leather puppet. His puppets have been used in shadow plays at home and abroad, such as in Canada, Holland, Germany and the U.S.

Sukasman first observed the puppets as a little boy. He made leather puppets later in his youth, and graduated from the Indonesian Fine Art Academy (ASRI) in Yogyakarta, in 1962, majoring in advertising, decorative arts, illustration and graphic arts.

Since graduating, he has experimented with leather puppets. He strongly disagrees with the popular conception that the puppet’s form has already reached a state of perfection and needs no divergence.

As an artist, he purges his restlessness with the obsessive scientific study of leather puppets. He has tried to crack the stylization secret of the puppet’s shapes. Finally, he found a way to modify the form by measuring individual parts: the body, the arms, the legs, the neck and the shoulders. Hence the origins of his puppet’s name, Wayang ukur (leather puppets in measurement).

Sukasman, who worked as a dishwasher and did other jobs in the Netherlands between 1965 and 1974, has devoted nearly all his life to wayang. He remains unmarried and most of his earnings went back into his art. He owns a large house on Jl. Taman Siswa, Yogyakarta, which serves as both his house and workshop.

 

To read the full interview, click here.

It was not so easy to find the place where we knew about that you could still find some of his artworks. The first place that Google maps told us to go to turned out to be wrong… We asked around a bit and after a while we found a guy¬†who could point us his house / workshop. We stepped inside, a bit unsure if this was the right place where we could find¬†Ki Sukasman’s¬†artworks. Inside the house we found a young man who confirmed that this was his old work space. He leaded us to the back of the building and showed us some of the remaining artworks and told us that all the original wayang puppets he made¬†are now in the possession of his brother and some museums.

Sukasman

When we walked to the back we felt like entering someones private ‘studio’, not really the idea of a gallery.¬†On the side, against the wall we found some of the remaining artworks (engraved¬†slate stone plaques). And they where absolutely amazing! Around 170 cm high, beautifully engraved, extremely detailed. It was almost sad to find these great¬†artworks, covered with dust, put away in a sort of garage. The boy leaded us around and explained us what he knew about the history of these artworks and around which time they where made. 3 big rooms, filled with all these beautiful doors, statues, windowpanes. We almost couldn’t believe that so many people in the past where disagreeing with his idea of traditional wayang, these were masterpieces! A small, but impressive collection of some of¬†Ki Sukasman’s¬†artworks, definitely one¬†that deserves more attention.

Sukasman_3 Sukasman_4

Sukasman_8

Overall in our opinion, an amazing, under appreciated,¬†artist with a very progressive view on the¬†traditional wayang. If you’re interested in visiting his workshop, to see these artworks follow the directions below;

 

Head to¬† JL Taman Siswa in Yogyakarta,¬†but don’t go into the small streets of the¬†neighborhood¬†but stay on the¬†main road and you will find the¬†Ki Sukasman’s workshop¬†on the left¬†side¬†of the road next to a parking lot where you can park your car.

Because this is a quite ‘hidden’ place, certainly not a tourist attraction, there’s no entry-fee to see these artworks, but please grab a bite in the small warung inside the building to give some support to the people who take care of the remains of this beautiful collection.

BUDDHISM PARASOL / UMBRELLA

Parasol

Ade recently did this Tibetan design on one of his returning customers.

Buddhism parasol / umbrella

In Buddhism, the parasol is a symbol of royal dignity and protection from the heat of the sun. Besides that it also¬†represents protection from the “heat” of negative forces, like greed, lust and suffering, obstacles in the path towards enlightenment.

Parasol_2

The ornate parasol usually is depicted with a dome, representing wisdom¬†and a “skirt” around the dome, representing compassion. Sometimes the dome is octagonal (having eight angles and eight sides), representing the Eightfold Path. Sometimes it is square, representing the four directional quarters.

The Buddhist parasol is part of 8 other important symbols of Buddhism, called the The Eight Auspicious Symbols of Buddhism.
