You don’t get much more surreal than the illustrations of Indonesian artist Roby Dwi Antono. Like a strange dream from the mind of a sleeping rabbit, nearly all his works feature the cuddly, long eared creatures in some state of unreal transformation… the kind only seen when your subconscious mind is at work. In one good example, a rabbit wearing one-piece pajamas floats into the air while a house grows from the top of his head, ears springing from its windows. As if the house itself is alive, an eye and ears sprout from its walls. The rabbit itself, with a serenely peaceful look on its face, waves a crystal pendent while books spring from the zipper in its clothing. Are these stories the source of the drawings inspiration?
Just 22 years old, Roby Dwi Antono has already made quite a name for himself in the art world. He currently works as a full-time artist, illustrator and graphic designer in Yogyakarta, working on book projects, album covers and selling prints of his beautiful pieces. He says he’s found inspiration from such masters as Mark Ryden and Marion Peck… we’d say he’s quickly on his way to mastery himself. You can see more of his works on Behance or on his website lobilob.blogspot.co.uk.
