Kata, Gambar by Goenawan Mohamad

Goenawan Mohamad is a long time poet and new artist who has been drawing sketches on his spare time for years. In late 2016, he began to draw for public due to requests after his drawings were featured on the collective poetry book Don Quixote (2014). Within 4 months, Goenawan Mohamad has produced around 200 sketches. He attributed the rapid process to impulse, quoting Dali that an image is an honest artform, whether the result is good or bad.

The themes showcased in Kata, Gambar exhibition are “Yang Grotesk” (The Grotesque), “Gambar, Kata Yang Bisu” (Image, a muted word), and “Wajah” (Face). As a poet, his sketches are often embellished with wordings.
