Martinus Sumbaji with the short name Em Sumba was born in 1973 in Lampung, southern Sumatera. He moved to Jakarta in 1994,where he worked for a Japanese animation studio until 1999. While working in this studio he developed his own painting technique. He began painting photo-realistically,then,went through a long process making black and white sketches to find his own style. For Martinus Sumbaji, the act of painting is a journey of the soul, based on his life experiences. That is why he makes many sketches, a form of picture-writing which is capable of expressing his thoughts or noting his observations. These sketches act as the data base for new paintings, and , he continues to work on then, and allows himself many changes,until he accepts them as the basis for his works. Many of em sumba's paintings are humorous, some are personal, and others violent. The shapes of the objects he shows may often be distorted, and the subject he chooses depends on what he feels at the time when he starts a new work.It could be symbols, animals, or the human situation in general. Martinus Sumbaji's themes can derive from a wide variety of sources, which can included references to western art history, ideas from popular culture, and inspiration from traditional Indonesia mythology. As the images in Martinus Sumbaji's paintings depend on his personal situation at the time, his art has the character of a witty, personal, and intimate diary in which he records fragments of his own life, and attempts to make sense of his life and environment.
