HeHe is one of the generation of young Indonesian artists of early 2000 who were born mostly in early 1980s. HeHe then started to  make his own way up in 2007 with  his first solo show at Via-Via café in Jogjakarta. From the beginning he has always been interested in painting, drawing, working with resin toys, premises based on his experiences in everyday life and issues of contemporary culture.

HeHe maintains a childlike signature with surreal characters and a crash colour harmony. The work is full of them. Most of them are objects that all have characters and personalities as if they are all alive. The land is imaginary but it cant be said as ‘unreal’ or completely a fantasy. It exists, as we can do things and interact within the work. It can even make us feel. It replaces the supranatural world as our second reality. To some it even becomes a second life.

HeHe embraces his artwork with friendliness and fun, with a kind of acceptance and openness of new possibilities and potentials, while also being aware of its irony and distance, while moving on with his existence in the real world that can be the same on one side but also completely different on the other, in terms of absurdities and abnormalities.
