A graphic designer turned painter, Mangu Putra, is having a solo show at Can’s Gallery, Jakarta, called “Serenity”. It displays nine of his almost hyperrealistic landscape paintings, depicting nature as it is.

"Serenity #4"

Mangu’s started to become a painter in 1998. He hasn’t been known to stick to just one style of painting. He has a wide range of style, from abstract to realistic. For now, he likes to depict the objects as how he saw and remembered them and in a very detailed manner. There is no hidden message, the Bali-based artist just wants to show nature as it is, may it be the leafy side or the harsh and rocky elements.

"Pohon Ara #1"

The show is running from 15 April-15 May 2023. The opening ceremony was attended by many art collectors, artists, and friends who always support his and Can’s Gallery’s journey.
