indieguerillas is a husband and wife artist duet from Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Founded in 1999 as a graphic design firm, indieguerillas’s philosophy of “constantly in guerrilla to find new possibilities” has led them to become full-time artists in 2007. Nevertheless, design still plays a very important role as it allows for them to explore the use of unconventional media and techniques as part of their artistic process. In addition to their proficiency at visual effects and inter-media experimentation, indieguerillas’ works are also recognized for its folklore influences. Through their multidisciplinary works, they talk about their reality as Javanese people who live amidst a wave of global consumerism that demands everything to be instantaneous. Their art making process is an auto-criticism ritual and a method of self-reflection.
