About the Artist
I am Friska a painter, muralist and entrepreneur with a bachelor degree from Fine art and design.
I’ve always been around some form of visual art. Whether it is designing a product, painting or teaching art, it’s always evolving. It has led me to good and bad experiences and to try to understand the way life is playing with us. I often paint trauma, tragedy, hard life and eventually overcoming those events on display, that somebody can see and will connect to it in their own way with similar experience. These are not only my problems, but also observations from stories and diaries of my surroundings. As a result of displayed feelings you will see radiant colors and symbols in my work.
How does an Indonesian woman live in Copenhagen? When I was travelling around Europe in 2019-20, I fell in love with the vibe of Copenhagen and I decided to stay for a bit longer. Safety, freedom and connection with my Muse here (inspiration for painting) helped to make the decision long-term. Even though life is not easy anywhere, I am grateful for my opportunities and people I inspire on my way.
