An artwork can have a thousand meanings for each one who cherishes it, and the painting crafted by Romie Johanes is one of them. Romie is an Indonesian painter who has an abstract, beautiful painting style, with an impressive meaning. For showcasing his work on Artist Talk Magazine January 2022 Issue, Romie entrusted us to capture the moment of creating his painting!
“I heard about SweetEscape from a friend, and have been using the service for years in many countries, such as New York, Melbourne, Bali, San Francisco. The photoshoot experience was fun and engaging as well, there is a feel good and trust between customer service, photographer and me as a client, the photoshoot was able to project my personality and my art. Love SweetEscape, love the convenience you give us and love how you capture the essence of the people - reflected in the beautiful result” - Romie
What is important in each of his paintings is the fluidity and elegance to suggest the movement of life: the beginning, the journey, the ups and downs, the failures, the challenges, the triumphs, and finally the end. Romie explained, “I simply want the audience to feel the movement, the tranquility and the journey of the movement.”
Through his paintings, Romie wants to emphasize where he came from. Since Indonesia consists of water by 62% and land by 38%, he named some of his artworks series such as AQUA, OLIVE, and TERRA, each representing the beauty of earth’s elements.
He also shared the source of inspiration for his style. “After completing my formal education, I explored several countries in Asia, and was captivated by the quality, meticulousness, and diligence of Japanese artists. Spending one year in Japan, I learned the art of Suminagashi and Shodō from plenty of Japanese artists and studios, which shaped the fluidity and flowy quality of my painting to date.”
