Tiarma is passionate about developing the creativity of young Indonesian designers through workshops & internship programs & events. She sees her key role in the facilitation of art @Poleng Studio as a medium of expression & communication through various exhibitions, lectures, writing, art performances & forums. She has worked quite consistently with pink since the beginning of her career as a painter & fashion artist in 1998 & has brought up pink plastics & synthetic fur to highlight the fickleness, volatility & falsehood that permeate our dearly held beliefs, influences & lifestyles. Through her bold conceptual approaches to art, fashion design & pop culture, Tiarma has explored themes such as love & lust, foreign influences on Indonesian culture & mass consumerism to name but a few. Her art is intended to show the hyper reality in the contemporary context. She used fashion in her painting as a medium to express the journey of her performances. She shows her exploration of her free spirit in her painting. Her artwork uses pink as the main color. She uses this color to give an eccentric sensation for her creation. She used pink also because the color is very girly, kitsch, synthetic. It has been her signature to use this brilliant color in her artwork. But, since 2008 until now she is developing any kind of artworks with Batik theme, one of them with the title: Transporter & Transformer; and the concept behind it: we live in a complex transnational and global meeting, mixings and clashing of different cultural perceptions at an increasing rate and pace as never seen before. Careful attention is needed in the treatment of our traditions; not just preserve them, but imbue them with life in the context of the present day that they will have meaning in the current global art horizon. In the work, Transporter & Transformer, we transport cultural images & ideas from diverse visit places & experience into a contemporary piece that can be appreciated by the public across continents. The pandemic has been a catastrophe of diverse layers of human life, which affects the health, mobility, economy etc. We don't know how long this pandemic will take, we don't know how long we have to stay in distance and after all this, we are sure that the world wouldn't be the same. As artists, we are forced to rethink and find solutions with our creativity. Questioning about how we could bring our work to the audience in a different way, brings us to rethink about the medium used in our art. She has exhibited extensively throughout Indonesia and in countries around the world such as: Argentina, Australia, Bangladesh, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Cambodia, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Cuba, Denmark, Ecuador, Egypt, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Iran, Italy, Japan, Korea, Libya, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mexico, Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, Panama, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Singapore, Slovak, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, Turkey, Uruguay, Venezuela, Vietnam, Ukraine, United Kingdom, USA & others
