Agus Baqul Purnomo (b. 1975, Yogyakarta) has been creating artworks for over a decade, since his college years at the Indonesian Institute of Art, Yogyakarta (ISI).

His works have been shown at various exhibitions in Taiwan and the United States and he has also participated in numerous visual art projects at various locations, with his works tabulating both two and three dimensional forms.

His works are currently in the collection of the [Taiwan National Museum] and the Museum of Small Arts, Malaysia (MoSA).

It can be said that Agus is a visual artist that has the potential to effect growth in abstract painting, particularly through his ability to eloquently express four main elements in his work: rhythm, texture, colour and repetitive shapes.

His choice of shapes is strengthened by an expressive use of texture, that are at times heightened with alphabets, light control, and solid colours that convey meanings of their own.

Agus's artwork presents a refreshing departure from current abstract expressions in Indonesia, which have lately been dominated by 'pleasing' and sterile formalism, by employing visualisations inspired by abstract expressionism, but in a context all its own.

His latest series of work show verses in the Qur'an and prominent flowers in Indonesia that appear many gardens.
