Nurrachmat Widyasena

(l. Kanada, 1990)


Nurrachmat Widyasena, atau yang akrab dipanggil Ito, merupakan perupa, pegrafis, ilustrator, dan desainer Indonesia yang tinggal dan bekerja di Bandung. Ia belajar seni grafis di Fakultas Seni Rupa dan Desain Institut Teknologi Bandung dan lulus pada tahun 2013. Karya-karyanya sangat dipengaruhi oleh retro-futurisme, fiksi-sains, Pop Art, dan komik. Berkarya dengan berbagai medium seperti lukisan, seni grafis, dan instalasi, serta material seperti pelat logam, pipa besi, kayu, dan objek temuan (found object), Ito menggambarkan ironi masyarakat kita dengan membandingkan imaji masa depan yang canggih di pertengahan abad ke-20 dengan realita mengecewakan yang kita hadapi hari ini. Ironi tersebut diperluas ke dalam proses artistiknya dengan menggunakan teknik-teknik sederhana untuk menggambarkan gagasan futuristiknya. Dalam pameran tunggalnya tahun 2019 yang berjudul “Nostaljik Kritik: Operasi Taimket”, Ito mulai beralih dari karya figuratif ke abstraksi bentuk yang diambil dari teori-teori fisika, yang juga menandai pergeseran tema kekaryaannya dari fantasi menjadi realitas.
