Hi! My name is Hermansyah Filani
I am an autodidact painter from Indonesia
You may have know me somewhere else as a blogger who talk about random things related computers and internet etc.
But in this blog I only posting about my art and all things related.
A little story about me
I was born in a small town in Java island Indonesia called Jepara
Since I was a child I was fascinating by art, especially painting. When most of all my child friends like to spend their time playing with their toys, I mostly play with my drawing book and pencil and water color.
My beloved mother saw my ‘child passion’ and always support me and encourage me to become a painter and surround me with book about painting and drawing. Thank you mother.
Time goes by..
When I was 18th – 24th, the story become a little out of the track. You know, get out with your friends, waste your time for nothing.. really a mess up. I even drop out from high school because I follow the wrong life style.
And it comes to moment when you realize, you are wasting your life.
Took more than three years for me to self rehab, isolate my self and live a ‘sober life’.
During this period my child passion calling me again, I did learn again to drawing and painting and developing my skill and knowledge about fine art.
My brother and sister always kind for brought me a lot of books about art and philosophy from local library. It really help me to learn more about essential of art and it history, of course I also learn a lot from internet (Wikipedia, blog etc)
During this time I also learn other things like English, computers stuff, audio engineer (Home recording) and yeah blogging! And I learn all by autodidact.
In the very dark moment in your life, sometimes you found yourself, you found the ‘light’.
I’ve got very good feedback from my ‘neighbor hood’ and society, they start accept me as a new person. I start to get a commission work for portrait painting sometimes, you know the mouth of world.
And time goes by…
But once again I felt the paradox, I feel that I need to develop my art more further. So I take a break for doing portrait.
As time goes by, you know sometime you have to work, out of art and so on. Yeah! that’s life..
But art! always make me come back again and again and again to my ‘child passion’.
And in a middle 2017 this year, I start it again. So I make this blog for a place to share my new art journey. My quest!
Welcome to my journey.
