Biography  
Heri Dono


Heri Dono famously studied at the Indonesian Institute of Art in Yogyakarta for seven years (1980-1987), even winning the Best Painting Prize in 1981, but deliberately dropping out just before graduation on principle. He said: “No institution can guarantee that with a certificate, you can be an artist. So I did an experiment for myself to see if I did not get a certificate — could I still be an artist?” His won the Unesco Prize at the Shanghai Biennale in 2000, but his biggest accolade was Belgium’s Prince Claus Award in 1998. He has had solos in the United States, Singapore, Australia, Canada, Japan, Britain and Switzerland.
