Born in Northern Borneo and currently based in Penang, Satria Utama’s (aka Sattama) daily observations and illusions processes into quirky art translations: each chosen subject takes on a different visual signature. He also doubles as a musician and sound designer with the ability to transcend instruments and sound.
For our first Sesi Seni in 2020, we caught up with Satria Utama to learn more about his “Experimental Exploration in Fiction Storytelling”. He shared his exploration in both visual and performance art, and how they influence his thought processes and mediums of experiment. He also talked about his residency experience at Gwangju, South Korea, and participation in the 12th Gwangju Biennale.
