"The remarkable Indonesian and world-record breaking artist, Arya Trimni Putra is originally from Surabaya, East Java where he nurtured a successful career as a Psychologist. In 2001, Arya lost his mother and wife, and this devastating period changed the course of his life."
Overwhelmed with grief, friends presented Arya with blank canvases and encouraged him to paint as a way of expressing the rawness of his emotions. Unexpectedly, Arya's creations impressed many. Encouraged and excited, Arya chose to become a full-time artist with a commitment of giving back to the community. In early 2019, Arya completed the phenomenal feat of painting 1,000 abstract paintings in a period of 30 days, a record that is documented by the Indonesian World's Records Museum (MURI).
Arya says "I believe that art as a communication medium must express emotion. My passion is to explore subjects that portray all aspects of peoples lives, including their spirituality, feelings and the way they express themselves. I am committed to devoting the very best of myself to the project in the hope of inspiring the community with my spirit and energy".
