The well known street artist - Slinat - will held a "Wheat Paste After the Street Workshop" this Saturday at Rumah Sanur. Wheat paste is one of the weapons used by street artists to paste images on the wall. Activists and various subculture proponents often use this adhesive to flypost propaganda and artwork. Easy, fast and Bomb! This workshop will invite the participant to create a work by tide patch technique, onto the medium (cardboard or cloth) by using wheat paste, and you can paint it with spray paint typically used by street artist.
In conjuction with this program that initiated by Ketemu Project, Slinat will also showcasing his recent works that will be happen from 24 March - 14 April 2018 also at Rumah Sanur.
I Lope Bali is just a prank to parodied I Love Bali, "Lope" here does not mean anything just for a joke. In this showcase, Slinat still holds the theme of -X Visit Bali Year X- theme that he always brought since the end of 2012, either in street art or his painting’s works. This theme parodies the jargon of the government and big business entrepreneur "Visit Bali Year", revealing the reality of Bali behind the "Bali" offered by tourism or Bali that is covered up by the interests of tourism. Bali Behind Exotic (Degung Santikarma).
In this showcase, Slinat presents works focusing on technique and material exploration. Slinat is interested in using environmentally friendly materials or reusable materials. Technically, he adapted the wheat paste process he used when making street art work, other than mural. Wheat paste technique makes it easy to make street art piece in a shorter time. This technique is then adapted for artworks with secondhand materials such as old traditional fabrics, wood, and cardboard as the painting’s medium. He also explored his drawing skill with a ballpoint on an old and yellowed children's coloring book. In other works, he used a spray paint that was cracked on a used drum cover. Last but not least, he is now digging back the china ink (natural ink) on the canvas, a technique that Slinat ever tried in 2009 and want to explore the possibilities even more.
