Prabowo is one of the rising stars from the Indonesian Art Institute
in Yogyakarta. He is an important member of a group that calls itself
Apotik Komik (The Comic Pharmacy) which exhibits on any empty wall
on the streets of Yogyakarta. Apotik Komik has been actively making
exhibitions since 1996, and just recently gained national recognition.
Prabowo's painstakingly detailed works on paper are so finely crafted
that one is as much in awe of his highly developed drawing skill
as one is captivated by the mind bending content. Aris' works depict
chilling tales that comment on such issues as the dangers of the
US trained and supplied Indonesian army spinning out of control
as the Indonesian government continues to lose its feeble grip on
the reins of its military (The Playroom).
