Solo, Central Java born Djoko Lantas Sudibyo studied architecture and interior design during his university years before turning his attentions to painting. Tutored by the famous Indonesian painters Srihadi and Pirous, he discovered a modern approach to form and color. Over time, many of his expressionistic works themed themselves on Chinese calligraphy – revealing what Djoko calls his artistic energy or "chi."
A prolific painting career dating from 1986 was interrupted in August of 2001, when Djoko suffered a stroke that has left him unable to paint. Using traditional medicines and therapies he has made steady progress and is planning further surgeries and treatment to fully restore his health.
