Twisted Vacancy is an Indonesian Artist sharing his thoughts through illustration & motion graphics with complex objects and surrealistic approach wrapped in immersive color combination.
Isolated, Quartered,trapped in endless weird dreams. life is solid prison, the thick rules that we hold, it's nice to sleep above it but still i'm not buying what you told, and all people around it, help hell's fire being sold.
The Number 1, The Magician and his willpower. With allegiance for Selene. For those who believe in their self to reach self full potential.
"For the symbol of peace inscribed on my circuit, help me Father to tear The Sky once again"
"I developed my style through trial and error for more than 4 years. In the early days when I developed how to put the complexity of subject matters from my visions into compositions, I tried to give my pieces lots of life and color and the result didn’t satisfy me. It didn’t really express what I was feeling, my mood. Even when I didn’t make art professionally, it was always important for me because it was part of my therapy".
This name came to my head several years ago. Due to my disorder there are lots of things and voices going through my head at almost every second. Even with all these voices running through my head I still felt emptiness. I then learned to draw a string from that emptiness to the voices inside my head which resulted in new perspectives towards everything. I’m using this name derived from my conditions to represent all my works of art.
Many voices that represent many aspects of life. TwistedVacancy is a fictional character from non-fictional stories — it can be me, it can be anyone, it could be you in another form of life. I’m thinking of passing this name to someone else someday and letting it continue for generations. I’m curious how many stories TwistedVacancy can tell to everyone and how many voices he can represent through all the works entitled to him.
I like to create a universe from my visions that represent issues ranging from social-politics to pop culture. I play with many allegories and put hidden messages wrapped in sci-fi or twisty subject matters with an immersive feel. I want the art to be enjoyable even if you don’t want to bother to decipher the code/meaning. I’m inviting all of you to explore those fragments of dimensions
My work process is back and forth between Adobe Photoshop and Adobe After Effects. I start from paper for several objects, tracing my drawings manually onto my ipad since i don’t do auto-trace (lots of people call me dumb for this). I add details and coloring manually by stroking each shape separately. I don’t use any paint-bucket tools since it gives a really different feeling on every edge. After that I use photoshop to enhance colors and after effect for animations. It’s a long process, but I believe the struggle and time spent gives more value to each piece I create.
