The Natural flow of batiKim

My work is mixture of traditional Indonesian technique called batik (painting with hot wax on cotton)  and individual contemporary motives.

The motives are created from inspiration of everyday life, nature that surrounds me, my own emotional state, imagination and creativity. The expressive lines thrown on the white surface, following the path of the fabric are made with the canting. The canting allows me to play with lines, to capture the essence of the nature, her curves, her softness and her force. The energy  from the nature with the combination of technique batik allows me to exceed expression, not only in the drawing process but also in the imagination of creating and colouring.

Making Batik takes a loot of time and patience.
It is The Art that never lets you down with creativity and pushes you to find new solutions and keeps you up with surprises on every step of the way.
