Hari Kartini

Tuesday, April 21, 2015 Robert William 9 Comments

  After long time no posting in this blog, i'm back with an art story.

 So every 21 April we, Indonesian celebrate Hari Kartini (English: Katini Day). It's a day to commemorate the birth of Raden Ajeng Kartini, an Indonesian national heroine. Kartini is hailed as Indonesia's first feminist. She was a pioneer in the area of women's rights for Indonesian. She is seen as the symbol of Indonesian women's emancipation. Back to the history, all women in Indonesia were prohibited to get education and work, they used to be in the kitchen only. But because of Kartini, now women can work and study too. And to celebrate it, i've made some illustrations.
Take a look.

  I draw these using watercolor pencils on paper, scan them to the computer, and edit them on Photoshop. There are roses on each side of every woman, a rose means rights. So every woman has her own rights. And each woman in the picture represents a personality. I wanna show that every woman is beautiful on her own way.
