About Iabadiou Piko
An artist from Prabumulih, Indonesia, Iabadiou Piko studied Art Photography at the Academy of Design Vision in Yogyakarta ( ADVY ). After graduating, he embarked on a career as a full time painter. His works are allegories and metaphors that reflect his daily life. He creates his works using the medium of painting and photography. Mostly abstract and intuitive, his works are inspired by the people he meets each day, things that happen to him, and places he has been to. A visual diary is produced whenever he captures memories, feelings and his own imagination. Apart from participating in group exhibitions in Indonesia, he has also exhibited in group shows in New York, Italy, Bangkok, China, Portugal and Canada.
