Sio Sandra Jaya was born in Bengkulu in 1981 and currently resides in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia. His artwork takes a critical view of social, political and cultural issues. In his work, he reflects on the impact that occurs in the community, whether intentional or unintentional, involving various kinds of subjects, such as the body, buildings, and the surrounding environment.
From the Artist... Working with small themes that are not so much the focus of some artists and that does not apply to me, has become a part every time I am working on a work, other than as a form of self-reflection, these small themes can be part of the journey of my life... life in childhood and the lives of people around me or other people's life experiences that can inspire to be written in the work.
In each theme, it is not merely using canvas as a media for visuals, sometimes I use rubber or paper sponges, this is usually adjusted to the theme that is raised.
