//ID

Kelvin Atmadibrata menempatkan dirinya pada posisi yang beranjak dewasa dalam mendekati konteks maskulinitas. Keremajaan tersebut dilengkapi dengan elemen-elemen pinjaman dari teori game RPG, kultur shōnen dan macho ero-kawaii dalam menantang persepsi negatif terhadap erotika, gender dan seksualitas. Karya-karyanya berbentuk performens yang hampir selalu didampingi oleh dan diterjemahkan ke gambar, kolase media campur dan objek yang disusun sebagai instalasi. Setelah lulus dengan Sarjana Seni Rupa dari Nanyang Technological University di Singapura, sekarang ia menjalankan Sepersepuluh, sebuah galeri yang berfokus pada kriya performens.

Kelvin Atmadibrata recruits superpowers awakened by puberty and adolescent fantasy to assemble formidable armies of outlaws. Equipped by shōnen characters and macho ero-kawaii, his antiheroes contest the masculine and erotica in Southeast Asia. He works primarily with performances, often accompanied by and translated into drawings, mixed media collages and objects compiled as installations. Approached as cross-disciplinary projects, Kelvin recreates narratives and characters based on RPGs (Role-playing video games) theories and mythologies. Kelvin Atmadibrata graduated with Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) majoring in Interactive Media from School of Art, Design and Media in Singapore's Nanyang Technological University. Previously based in Singapore for a decade, he now lives and works in Jakarta, Indonesia and co-runs Sepersepuluh, a performance-focused gallery in the northwest fringe of the capital.
