Description:
Lot 51: POPO ISKANDAR (b. 1927 - d. 2000), Rooster, 1995, Oil on canvas Description: The rooster is another distinctive theme by Popo Iskandar conceived in 1974 as an object study and the theme was continuously repeated in the following decades. Popo Iskandar relates the rooster to the weathervane, a wind direction indicator commonly found in Europe particularly in the Netherlands to indicate the country's variable ocean conditions although the stimulation of Popo Iskandar's roosters is beyond the weathercock. In a meticulous decision to implement uniformity in his roosters, Popo Iskandar explains: "Although my roosters can be painted with just one or two colours, their combs must be red." Presented here is an all red rooster with yellow beak and speckles of green and blue are expressively painted on its body. Popo Iskandar's interest in the arts grew when he undertook a painting course at Keimin Bunka Shidoso, Bandung under the guidance of Barli Sasmitawainata and Hendra Gunawan in 1943. His artistic career began as a poster painter for the Information Service of Indonesian Students Armed Force (TRIP) in 1945. He was then enrolled at the Bandung Institute of Technology, Department of Fine Arts and graduated in 1958. Aside from his role as a lecturer at the State Teachers Training College in Bandung, Popo was also a highly regarded scholar and art critic. His bold, graphic works usually feature stylised animal forms with vivid colours. In the 1960s, he created his signature collection of artworks on topic of cats that reflect on not only the physical attributes but the spiritual understanding of the animal. Popo received numerous accolades during his lifetime and was awarded life membership by the Jakarta Academy for shows held outside of Indonesia, namely in China, Japan, the Netherlands, United Kingdom and United States of America. An exhibition titled Popo Iskandar's Expressions in collaboration with Griya Seni Popo Iskandar was held at Curate, Seni Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur in 2014 to celebrate the artist's decades of creative oeuvre.

He graduated from the Bandung Institute of Technology, Department of Fine Arts in 1958 and lectured at the State Teachers Trainings College in Bandung. Popo was not just an artist, but a well-respected intellect, art critic and observer. In 1970, he was awarded life membership by the Jakarta Academy for his dedication and contributions to the arts. Popo has participated in many group exhibitions held in China, England, India, Japan, Holland and USA as well as solo shows in Indonesia and Holland since 1953. �A panther is helplessly tickled by fireflies-a theme unexplored by the Indonesian visual arts scene, the idea in itself is almost philosophical or fantasy-like, but what is clear is that this is me, an artist who have seen modernism develop over 40 years, presenting my definition and being a part of that change.� Popo Iskandar, Pikiran Rakyat, 17 May 1983. A �macan tutul' is not a cat. Rather, they are an evolution of Popo's cat. Inspired by the composition of river stones, Popo fills the silhouettes with dark charcoal spots. The outline of �macan tutul' is painted to emulate the soft, willowy folk music from Cianjuran, Bandung. Distinctively Popo's, the �macan tutul' or panther share the same signature silhouette and ears as the cat. A self-taught artist, Popo Iskandar was likely influenced by Neo-expressionism; a style of modern painting that emerged in the late 1970s and dominated the art market until the mid- 1980s. In Neo-expressionism, recognizable objects, such as the human body are portrayed in a rough and violently emotional way using vivid, harmonious colours.
