    Artist Bio

    (b. 1998, Semarang, Indonesia)

    Mutiara Riswari studied at Yogyakarta School of Art in 2013 before continuing her studies at the Indonesian Institute of the Arts Yogyakarta. She graduated in 2019, and she currently lives and works in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Mutiara’s works mostly communicate about the spirit and human beings, and the relationship between humans and nature. She is inspired by the philosophy of Jagat Alit (microcosmos), a term that describes humans as an inseparable part of the universe. In her artworks, she connects the Jagat Alit concept to the psychological condition of humans. She believes that art is therapy for everyone, a way for one to release emotions, an exchange of energy.
