Born on January 8th, 1992 in Bandung, Indonesia, Puri Fidhini is a Bandung-based artist who has both her B.F.A and M.F.A degree from Faculty of Art and Design, Institute Technology Bandung, majoring in Painting and Visual Art Practice.

The experience of frequent lucid dreams led Puri to explore the spatial relationship between reality and the dream state. Voids of empty spaces, fragmented subjects and, surreal scape’s are painted on various traditional and reflective mediums. It opens a multidimensional spatial sense that traps and frees its subjects from places of obscurity onto the visible realm. The most recent series, My Hús is Your Hús, is derived from a 2019 residency in Reykjavik, Iceland, observing a new land with interests in its people, houses, and nature. The assemblage composition of familiar landscape is a dreamscape homage, which tries to recreate the feeling of sublime happiness in a foreign place.
