Iskandar Collective

Iskandar Collective was established by Dondik, Wulang Sunu and Iskandar in Bali, 2019, through a program by Ketemu Project “Gerakan Kreabilitas”. 

Iskandar Collective is a new creative ecosystem that is built on equality. We work with people from different walks of life, including those who are disabled.

We creatively collaborate to design and develop unique limited edition products that highlight local values.

 

Pak Iskandar

Profile Pak Iskandar 

Pak Iskandar who is a visual artist created different artworks from paintings to installations. His house, which looks more like a gallery, displayed a lot of installations in every wall made of different waste materials; from damaged sandals, shoes to twigs, stone, plastic bottle caps, etc.

His artist career stopped a few years back when he fell sick, and a stigma that grows in the local community that claims his painting style doesn’t bring joy, looks weird and dark. Though, he still dreamed that one day he could have his solo exhibition again, like what he did in the 1990’s.
