ARYA TRIMNI PUTRA

Gallery
“The remarkable Indonesian and world-record breaking artist, Arya Trimni Putra is originally from Surabaya, East Java where he nurtured a successful career as a Psychologist. In 2001, Arya lost his mother and wife, and this devastating period changed the course of his life.” Overwhelmed with grief, friends presented Arya with blank canvases and encouraged him to paint as a way of expressing the rawness of his emotions. Unexpectedly, Arya’s creations impressed many. Encouraged and excited, Arya chose to become a full-time artist with a commitment of giving back to the community. In early 2019, Arya completed the phenomenal feat of painting 1,000 abstract paintings in a period of 30 days, a record that is documented by the Indonesian World’s Records Museum (MURI). “Celebra...

A Day at the Ancient Temple of Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat was inaugurated as a UNESCO Before setting out to Angkor Wat I thought I’d see some of Cambodia’s capital, Phnom Penh and, to kill some time, I took a short walk around the city.
