Affandi's Garden Bliss

Last Christmas Cika, Fajar, and I were in Yogyakarta. We woke up in confusion: where to go? So we chose something "culture-y" yet "phenomenal". We went to Museum Affandi in the heart of the city.

Apart from its beauty architecturally, it has beautiful and well groomed garden, complete with blooming tropicals like frangipani, hibiscus, etc.

And there I learnt that Affandi, world famous for his abstract paintings, started his career as expressionist. I was totally eyes when I saw his painting of his mother. It is pastel on paper. it has quality of photograph with tiny details. "young abstracts" should also start their career like he did.
