Description: ‘Kodok’ is an Indonesian word meaning ‘frog’, which is somehow associated with the portrait. Erik Pauhrizi is known as a new media artist using text, drawing, painting, photography, video / film, sound, lighting and installation. But he took a circuitous route to being an artist. He first took up mechanical engineering at the Institut Keguruan dan Ilmu Pendidikan (IKIP) and gave up after two years. But he used his time more with the traditional music and dance group called Kabumi (Keluarga Bumi Siliwangi). He also initiated the Buton Kultur experimental space in Bandung. He finally graduated from the Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB), majoring in Textile and Media Arts, and graduating with a BFA cum laude in 2015. He also received a Diploma in Multimedia Art at the Braunschweig University of Art. He was awarded the Asia Cultural Council visual art research programme, in co-operation with the New Museum, New York, in 2010. In 2011, he had his first solo in New York called The Poison Of Our Sins, at CATM Chelsea.
