Sidharta Auctioneer ArtFordable Auction is honored to be able to collaborate with AQUA Danone to celebrate its 40th anniversary in Indonesia by promoting Temukan Indonesiamu (discover your Indonesia); a theme that AQUA Danone has carefully selected to allow Indonesian artists to highlight important events in Indonesia for the past 40 years.
It is brilliant for AQUA Danone, being the pioneer of bottled water in Indonesia, to initiate and promote Temukan Indonesiamu by visualizing milestones of events. AQUA Danone has invited and commissioned as many as 40 talented artists to choose an event of their interest then present it. Most of them are in their 20’s, and this project gave them the opportunity to look back and reflect what has happened in our country.

This year our Fine Art auction will be staged at the Tugu Kunstkring Paleis, the historical venue which introduced the residents of Jakarta (or Batavia as it was known at the time) to Modern Art, including to the works of Picasso, Chagall, Di Chirico, Kies van Dongen, and even Van Gogh, when the paint manufacturer P. A. Regnault showcased his prominent collection there between 1935 and 1939. It was also the place where as well as many Indonesian artists got the opportunity to stage their works through the Indische Bondscollectie exhibitions in the late 1930s.
Dear Art Lovers and Enthusiasts,
Welcome to the 3rd ArtFordable Auction of 2013. This auction offers 135 lots for you to enjoy with more selection of Chinese paintings. The artists whose artworks frequently appear at ArtFordable Auction, such as; Tarto, Wenas Heriyanto, Praponco Suprapto, Budiarta, Nyoman, Erica Hestu Wahyuni and Gunawan Bagea, have evolved to bring freshness. Check out our special features, such as; Suparta, I Nyoman, Erdal, Naz Kaya, Untung Wahono and Jing Chuang Long.
If you enjoy and like to see rich textures and multi nuance of color gradation, Tarto paintings will delight you. He has integrated and harmonized rich rendition of white, green, blue, yellow, orange and light brown to his canvas. Each section of the canvas has been organically clustered to create sense of movement. Each impressive detail is planned and carefully executed, as you may see it at Hijau Sawah di Langit Biru #1 (Green Paddy-field Under The Blue Sky #1) and Hijau Sawah di Langit Biru #2 (Green Paddy-field Under The Blue Sky #2).
Wenas’ works have evolved to allow animals that he features to come in larger flock. The Big Gathering and Suka Cita di Malam Hari painting show a group of penguin and rooster getting together with their own kind. In Si Merah Tampil Beda painting, one duck does not appear in plain white anymore, like the others, but in bold red. While the Red Horse painting depicts fierceness and fearlessness.
Dear Art Lovers and Enthusiasts,
Welcome to the second series of our ArtFordable Auction this year. We are carrying 127 lots of artwork for you to choose. As the dry season and the mid year school holidays are coming up, more colors and hot colors are here to embrace them.
We had hand picked various collections that appeal to different preferences and needs. We feature works by a new comer, Rejo. His painting have stunning details and intriguing facial expressions. The two other features are paintings by Rosit Mulyadi and Rohadi Cumik. Rosit works with shape and form of wooden dolls, while Rohadi shows his skill on light and shadow over every day fruits as the object. Check out also Lila Bodor, an artist form Hungary. She has interestingly distorted space and time from the perspective of human’s eyes.

Wish you warm welcome to our first ArtFordable Auction in 2013. To begin our painting and sculpture series of auctions this year, we bring in some fresh paintings that have never been auctioned before.
Bali is always the sanctuary for artists to get boundless inspirations and global influences. Some artists live in Bali and get inspired and few others drop by in Bali to get some artistic inspirations and to experiment. Expect unexpected colors, shapes and forms when you hunt for artworks in Bali. Sometimes you just cannot find them anywhere, but they are hidden somewhere; only through words of mouth you they can be discovered.

We begin 2013 with a very special auction of the estate of pioneering Indonesian fashion designer Peter Sie (Bogor 1929 – Jakarta 2011). At a young age of 17, he went to The Netherlands and studied at the Vakschool Voor Kleermaker & Coupeuse in The Hague from 1947 to 1953. Upon his return to Indonesia, he immediately started his fashion business, making dresses for Chinese-Indonesian ladies who lived around the Mangga Besar area of Jakarta, where he lived at the time.
In 1959, he held a fashion show at Hotel Des Indes in Jakarta. Meant to be part of fund raising event for a charitable cause, the show was a huge success and was attended by important personalities, including Indonesia’s First Lady, Fatmawati Soekarno. Following this first show, Sie’s career blossomed.
