Ron Kurniawan

A picture maker based in California with the taste for the pop surreal.  His pictures are composed by the juxtaposition of two or more completely different ideas and merging them into one to create something wholly different.  It is a mixture of animals, bubblegum, candy, robots, dreams, sex, fur, kaiju, the romantic, fantasy, mythology, peeps, fruits, patterns and type. It's a daydream that is giving birth to reality. An Art Center graduate majoring in making cool stuff, RK has worn many different hats, from being a fine artist to production designing a big feature.  He just wants to make imagery and stories that are fun and compelling.  Right now there are a couple of features and shows he is currently working on, alongside a book and a long overdue gallery show. New projects are always welcome. Main inspirations are derived from the magical world he lives in with his wife, three kids and a pug.
