Meeting Indonesian bio-inspired artist Syaiful Aulia Garibaldi

We had the pleasure of meeting Syaiful Aulia Garibaldi, bio-inspired artist, in his Bandung workshop in Indonesia 🇮🇩.



Syaiful, fondly known as Tepu, previously pursued education in agronomy before pursuing experimental fine arts, where he applies his scientific background and his deep curiosity of fungi to create a conceptual foundation for his art. His creation of an immersive environment was sparked by his interest in the networked and interconnected nature of ecologies, and the evocative power of microorganisms as symbols of death and decay, as well as life.



Tepu’s works in installation, painting, drawing, printmaking and video show a remarkably strong vision of art that collides with science in a graceful manner. The infusion between art and science transcends through Tepu’s work and gives way to a new gateway of knowledge, which is illuminated throughout his work.



Through #Fungi as an art medium, Tepu explores an interdisciplinary approach that is no longer related to a single system but a synergy between fields of science to solve increasingly complex social and environmental problems.



He has been a part of major group exhibitions in various countries, such as Indonesia, Singapore, China, Taiwan, France, Italy, Belgium, and Hong Kong with solo exhibitions across Asia.
