Exploring the Artistic World of Antonius Kho at Apricus Art Collection

In the rich tapestry of contemporary art, few artists weave as vibrant and culturally intricate narratives as Antonius Kho. His unique artistic vision, which merges the diverse arts and cultures of his native Indonesia with influences from his extensive international training, is a highlight of our offerings at Apricus Art Collection. Antonius’s body of work, characterized by its synthesis of mosaic and textile art, offers viewers a compelling journey through a fusion of Eastern and Western aesthetics.

A Journey Through Art and Culture

Originally from Indonesia, Antonius began his artistic education under the tutelage of the renowned Indonesian artist, Barli. His formal art journey continued at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bandung, graduating in 1982, before moving to Cologne, Germany, where he specialized in glass painting and textile arts at the Academy of Fine Arts. Antonius's time in Germany was marked by significant achievements, including winning first prize at the "Malen auf Liegestuehlen" competition in Cologne in 1989, and at the "Mask in Venice" event during the Art Addiction Annual in Venice, Italy, in 1998.

Global Recognition and Exhibitions

With a professional career spanning several decades from 1984 to 2020, Antonius held an impressive 33 solo exhibitions across diverse countries such as Indonesia, India, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Finland, the USA, Vietnam, South Korea, and China. Moreover, he participated in 114 group exhibitions worldwide in prestigious venues and was collected by notable museums, galleries, and private collectors globally. This extensive exposure reflects not only his versatility but also his ability to resonate with an international audience.

Artistic Statement and Themes

Antonius describes his work as "mosaics of art and culture from my country," reflecting a synthesis between the artistic traditions of the East and the West. His education in Germany significantly influences his style, particularly in the realms of glass paintings and textile art-tapestry. Antonius's work often features themes centered around people, reflecting various techniques and mediums. He states, "The subjects in my works are mostly about the mosaic of my life, the people around my life, I work with various phases, like circulation of my life." This personal reflection through art is achieved using mixed mediums including acrylic colors, collages of jute, rope, modeling paste, and transparent paper, creating a sense of three-dimensionality reminiscent of cubism.
