ART JOG 2013 Title Pic

One very hot day whilst wandering the alleys down by the river in Yogyakarta – Central Java…I was following the street art and taking photos…and eventually stumbled across {well, I had read about it but it had totally gone out of my mind….there is soooo much to see and do in Yogya!} the ART|JOG|13 – Art Jog 2013 {previously Jogja Art Fair} – Maritime Culture – Budaya Maritim exhibition at the Taman Budaya Yogyakarta.

WOW… I walked through the gates of Taman Budaya to see a huge wall of oil barrels that had been cut in half and opened out and shaped into sheet metal to create and resemble a vessel’s wall that covered the whole of the front entrance of Taman Budaya. But that’s not all…there was also a big silver whale tail coming out of the ground and right in front of the entrance door stood a large carousel that had a moving puppet show inside it – Iwan Affendi’s “Papermoon Puppet Theatre” Asyikkkk bangettttt!

*Visuals are going to be needed here…these amazing art works need to be solely appreciated for what they are without my ramblings! This is a small selection of some of the art artworks that were in the exhibition!

All I can say is….Yogya memang istimewa! {Yogya is indeed special!}
