Recent paintings by Dali Susanto
Date: Mar 16 – Apr 5Space: Main Gallery
Dali Susanto lives in Hawkes Bay, but originates from Indonesia. His large canvases and works on 3D are a heady mix of in-your-face colour and dynamic design, inspired by his cultural background, relationships and family. Dali’s parents and other family members own Batik galleries and he grew up surrounded by artists. He was named after Salvador Dali in hope that he would follow along the same footsteps and become an artist.
Dali produces bold paintings and designs, usually using acrylics. He has continued to expand on his creativity, painting on different media such as old saws, as well as canvas.
Since moving to New Zealand in 2007 Dali’s career as an artist has taken off and he has held several exhibitions in Hastings and Napier, as well as in the Taupo Museum. He also paints murals, and intends to continue growing and expanding as an artist, and is excited about the opportunities that lie ahead.
Come along and meet Dali and help him celebrate, 5-7pm on Friday 16 March. All welcome!
