About the Artists
Amanda’s artistic career started in Indonesia, way back in 1995. Her initial inspiration came from a piece of artwork her sister had made and given to her as a parting gift when Amanda shifted to Indonesia from her Malaysian home. This simple gift would inspire Amanda’s career in the creative arts.
Since then, she has exhibited in 4 continents and sold her work to clients in Europe, USA, New Zealand and Asia. The list continues to grow even today.
Amanda’s art celebrates life. She has always found abstracts to be the best form of art to express her thoughts and ideas. The vibrant colours and gently meandering strokes allow her to convey messages of hope and courage.
She harbors the lofty goal that her art will become a key instrument in transforming lives. She is always willing to convert her artwork into different mediums and, in the process, do her share for Indonesia’s local economy by creating jobs. To help provide for a better tomorrow to those who greatly need to believe that there is, indeed, a better tomorrow is her way of honoring the birthplace of her art career.
Having drawn and painted from the time he could hold a pencil, Virgil’s love for the arts was fostered at an early age. While still in High School he attended the Heron School of Design in Indianapolis and then went on to study on the West Coast in both Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Virgil’s primary influences are from the Expressionist, Impressionist and Abstract periods, in particular the works of Van Gogh, Egon Schiele, Robert Rauschenberg and Edvard Munch.
His mediums range from ink and Brush to Oil on canvas, and mixed media. He prefer to work with figures and has an interest in drawing and painting everything from realism to abstract.
