“I just let myself flow with everything that I experienced, while I maintain my identity, which is not dependent on other aspects that happen in society, because I have to keep my originality.” –Arifien Neif

Growing up in Surabaya, Arifien Neif had scant opportunities to pursue his developing interest in art. Although he did not enjoy the privilege of formal art training, he would sought out learning opportunities for himself, like visiting the Akademi Seni Rupa Surabaya (Surabaya Arts Academy) to observe classes from the window.What gives Arifien Neif’s painting their inimitable quality is the artist’s intelligent synthesis of the style of many great artists. The bohemian quality of his composition is reminiscent of Vincent Van Gogh’s capture of night scenes. In other paintings, the form of the human body recalls the exaggerated voluptuous figures of Fernando Botero. In the deliberate naivety of simplified forms, Neif has expressed a playfulness and innocence that is at once complicated by the sophistication of details.

Wanita Di Atas Meja Makan is an idyllic portrayal of a woman at a dinning table. Modern accoutrement surrounds the woman, marking her status as a woman of leisure. In the background of the painting is the artist’s familiar depiction of houses and landscapes, complemented by a swirling sky of impressionistic colours.


在泗水長大,阿里凡·涅夫小時候並沒有機會追求他對藝術的興趣。雖然他沒有機會接受正規藝術培訓,但好學的他會時常在泗水藝術學院(Akademi Seni Rupa Surabaya)課室外從窗口偷偷聽課室內的上課內容。阿里凡·涅夫的才能造就了他許多無與倫比的作品。他作品中的波斯米亞式的風格讓人聯想到梵高的夜景畫作。而在其他的作品中,又能讓人聯想到費爾南多·博特羅婀娜多姿妖嬈的人物。在有意地簡化和天真式的形體,在這俏皮和無辜的童真景象中,細節中又有複雜的優雅。
