Details

Bali artist Anton Papo uses his art as social commentary, and this original acrylic painting is no exception. A jolly-looking circus clown rendered in crude, heavy lines has its mouth crossed out as a symbol of silence. "I wanted to tell a story about the sanctification of loss" the artist states. "In this case, I symbolize from the 'clown' where everything he does is in the form of 'pantomime', with only a smiling face. As a reference of our nation nowadays, where they couldn't keep silent and end up making conflict just because of the wrong words that were spat out."
