Heri Dono


Founded in 2002 by Dong Jo Chang, The Columns has built its reputation as one of the most established galleries in Korea. With numerous international exhibitions, conferences and art fairs such as Art Central Hong Kong, KIAF Art Seoul, Art Jakarta, etc., The Columns aims to introduce both emerging and established artists to the Korean and international art scene.

The Columns Gallery, Seoul, South Korea, presents a solo show of Heri Dono (b.1960).

Heri Dono (b.1960) is a contemporary Indonesian artist known for his inventive mélange of traditional folk art with contemporary imagery. Throughout his practice, he combines a diverse source material, such as wayang kulit (shadow puppets), Western pop culture, and socio-political issues in paintings and installations. Dono has playfully but at the same time earnestly pursued his idea of peace through this unique aesthetical exploration.
