Flea Market Blitz..!
What is it what makes an artist? Is it his activities, his ideas or technical brilliance? Or his personality? Or just all of it? In the case of Widodo we are confronted with a very strong character who takes pride in his singularity.
For the sake of his art he is ready to sacrifice almost everything. An artist who does not want to depend from the market’s preferences or public opinion, strongly committed to his artistic journey and not willing to subject himself to any limitations. After all, when the market and everyone else has given up on somebody, things often get interesting. Certainly he does not make his artworks to please everyone. Widodo is indeed an artist with skills –especially his drawings are fine- and a creative spirit unable to refrain from creating new artworks.
