Affandi (1907 - 1990)
Self-portraitDate: not dated
Theme: Self Portrait
Technique: Oil on canvas
Museum: Singapore Art Museum (SAM)
Notes: Self Portrait exemplifies Affandiâ€™s approach to his artistic practice and philosophy. By using his hands instead of paint brushes to manipulate the oil paints directly onto the canvas, he injects the spontaneity of his human spirit into his own self-portrait in an emotional expressionistic style. For Affandi, he felt that the elimination of the painting brush in favour of his hands better conveys the complexity and depth of humanity. His use of strong colours like red, yellow and green in bold and expressive strokes confronts the viewer and asserts the individuality of Affandi as a modern Indonesian artist.
