Selamat Datang! Welcome to the website of renowned Indonesian artist Sudjana Kerton! His works continue to inspire thousands of people all over the world, and we hope that you will enjoy your visit.

The Sudjana Kerton Gallery, named "Sanggar Luhur" (Lofty Studio) in Indonesian, is located on Java in Bandung, Indonesia and is available and open to the public on a by appointment basis. Other private viewings may be available in Honolulu, Hawaii. Please contact us for more information.

This website displays a collection of works dated from the 1950's to the 1980's. These works of art convey Kerton's divergence with two worlds; one, the Western world which was intellectually stimulating to Kerton, and the other, Eastern, which he always felt in his heart.

"In my art, I feel that each specific subject I paint has become part of my inner feelings since first encounter. I become a part of it as it becomes part of me. Each work of art I make is the result of my ability to express and communicate these inner feelings, to breathe the life into the subject through my grasp on the constructive force, the spirit of life. I am part of every subject I paint, I share the feelings, the happiness, the misery, the hunger or thirst, the rain, the heat. This is why I paint from memory, to be able to express my inner feelings more clearly, and why the lines in my paintings often appear distorted."

- Sudjana Kerton
