The Illustrated world of Ronald KurniawanIllustration // Wednesday, 12 Sep 2012
Ronald Kurniawan graduated with honors from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Inspired by ideograms, syllables, letter forms, beasts and heroic landscapes, Kurniawan slowly but surely continues to create a visual language where the wilderness and civilization could merge happily together. With the belief that the sublime and nuclear age could coexist, Kurniawan paints romantic environments and breaks the quiet scene with juxtaposed imagery taking the shape of icons and letter forms. Ronald currently lives and works in Los Angeles where he paints meticulously and happily accompanied by his pug Ruffles, an avid artist himself.
