Jeihan Sukmantara

Biography from Henry Butcher Art Auctioneers

Jeihan Sukmantoro born 1938,  is one of several Bandung painters who despite the dominant abstract art tendency in the 1960s, has always been living and working outside the atmosphere of the art academy of Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) and producing works in a more figurative manner.  In his oeuvre, he has been actively exploring the use of minimal lines and colors on contrast with the emphasis of space and emptiness.  Consequently, his figures are depicted with strong black outlines juxtaposed against big empty fields of a few colors.
