International artist offers mask-making workshop

LEARN Arya Pandjalu's technique of papier maché to make a mask of your own design.

You might chose to use the mask to create a character or persona, leading onto other creative ideas, or it could exist as a work of art in its own right.

Pandjalu is an artist based in Yogyakarta (Indonesia)whose work focuses on social and personal story-telling through installation, print-making, painting, sculpture, performance and music.

Since the late 1990s, he has been interested in the subversive power of art.

He has recently started to focus on working with paper because it is a simple and unique medium which can be found in many traditions and is above all environmentally friendly.

Pandjalu has exhibited in cities all over the world including Yogyakarta, Rome, Brussels, Guagzhou (China), Berlin, The Hague and Vienna.

He has participated in the Sama-Sama Mural Project 2003 in San Francisco; Landing Soon Residency program at Cemeti Art House in Yogyakarta in 2006; and in 2010 a residency at Kosmopolis in The Netherlands.

The Mask Making Workshop with Arya Pandjalu will be held at the Lismore Art Space, 1 Norris St, Lismore, on Saturday, February 20, from 10am - 2pm, for young people aged 12 to 18. $20 (Bring own lunch)
