About Popok Tri Wahyudi

Born in Mojokerto, 1973, Popok Tri Wahyudi graduated with Bachelor’s degree from the Indonesian Arts Institute Jogjakarta. He now lives and works in Jogjakarta, Indonesia.

Popok’s works reflect his personal opinion about the environment where he lives, thinks and walks in, with all freedom he has, using any media. In the age where honesty is a luxury, Popok’s works stand out as a much – needed criticism towards the condition of humanity; a reminder for us to be more careful and wise in our behavior.
