By reading the title mini art, you may have guessed directly that you will see in the exhibition, artworks in mini or small sizes, on display. You are not wrong there, as they are mostly two dimensions with round about 10 x 10 cm in size.

Nowadays we often see Indonesian artists especially, pouring and expressing out their ideas on big size canvases. As some have their own perception that their work would be easier to sell and worth more, by making a bigger piece. Though, it really depends. In art, there is no limitation issue. Even tiny works could still be enjoyed and appreciated.

Art is about freedom and has no boundaries. The freedom of thinking, creativity, expression, and exploration. Art is within the soul of every human being and connected with people’s everyday life. Therefore no need to square up ourselves in boxes of social elements. Life is a cycle and goes around in a circle, until the end of time. As told in the story of an art performance, presented in the exhibition’s opening.
