GET MORE INFO ABOUT AFFANDI MUSEUM FROM VIDEO:

*) Mostly of visitor don’t like Affandi’s painting because it looks ugly and irregular shape. They prefer Affandi’s son and grandson painting collection. It looks more colorful. But, that’s the point, event it looks irregular shape, it show very detail painting. Even you can see the expression of the object of Affandi’s paintings. Also it hasn’t colorful because the limit budget of Affandi and the color ink innovation on that period it self.

    I liked some pieces of Affandi’s art, has similarities to Van Gogh, indeed. But most of all i enjoyed the works of his wife, daughters and grandson. Bright sharp compositions, pure colors… Recommend this place including because ot gives a bit different perspective on Javanese art, which is not only batik and folk dances 😉

    I loved the place – was a good shelter during the rain as well 😉
    I would recommend everyone to take the chance of being lead by a guide: It´s for free and you get to hear cool stories about this eccentric artist.
