Kelahiran 1960, Emmeloord, Belanda Tinggal dan berkarya di Yogyakarta

Mella’s focus on cultural and racial diversity through clothing has created works that are bodily modifications of the social space. Inspired by a painting of Murni’s that she owns titled Aku Merindukan Sepasang Anak/I am longing for a couple of kids painted in 1997, Mella collaborated indirectly with Murni who have “lived the full and painting was a way to deal with life experiences… she shows that nothing is too absurd to be painted…”
