hanging petunias – intangalistri

Why did you pick this picture?  

this art where I think I find commitment my style of art, it like looking for husband, you try to find some good and bad that you can take for the rest of my life, and this painting brings me that feeling, that I would paint this style of art for the rest of my life, and I will never feel be out of inspiration of it.

Where did the idea for this art come from?

that hard questions, ideas for my art come from a lot of visual events, thoughts and my feelings in the time when I want to draw… I was reading book of the ringmaster’s daughter by Jostein Gaarder and imagine the trapeze girl Panina Manina, and my feeling in that time I have problem waiting and assuring state of my life when I gonna move to Europe, and I think everyone ever feel that way, you feel stuck and there no way besides waiting and wish for the the best… so the hanging girl and all the girl there’s are my feeling … stuck and waiting… and still try to grow positive thought that I represent with the petunias.

What does this art mean to you?

the art itself it means extended of what I thought and feeling, like an expression that only I could full telling through painting. Another way 1 wants to show that being stuck not always bad, there beauty there in silence where u can think more what u will do, what u have done and growing positive energy.

What can you tell us about yourself?

my name is Intan Galistri 26 year old, Indonesian recently moved to Malta, I love a lot of kinds of art and fashion, I enjoying romantic, playful, kindness and eccentric. I try not to limit myself with any possibility but a bit judgemental to put me on good aesthetic.

What more can you tell us about your art?

my art is usually about my emotion and thought and my love to the aesthetic of beautiful creature that I think fascinating in that time, I like combination the minimalist and beautiful detail to bring the focus on the object, there will always myself in my art, represent me as human and their feeling, the existence that I know the most. I have social pressure where I came from, nudity is taboo or inappropriate instead seeing it as beautiful aesthetic not always about lust, but seeing myself grow out of it and it is beautiful, so I keep drawing it to find and attract people with beautiful mind around me.
