Short Bio
My name is Wok The Rock. It’s my artistic name. My real name is Woto Wibowo. I live and work in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. I am a multidisciplinary artist. My last formal education was at Visual Communication Design at Indonesia Institute of Art, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. On 2002, with several artists, I had founded Ruang Mes 56, an art space concerning contemporary photography. I also produce Video Battle, a short video compilation.

I have no specific style or theme in making an artwork. But i always interested to represent the symtomps of social-cultural changes in the place i live. In present days i was inspired by free-culture movement, which is promoting a share culture in exchange of information, knowledge, intelectual works. This concept has influenced the way i worked. By this direction then i produced some appropriation art and get engaged with digital/internet technology.

Alongside doing individual works, i’m interested doing a collaborative and interactive art project.

Beside visual art, i also interested in music. I was involved in underground music scene in Yogyakarta. By 2007 i’m running Yes No Wave Music, a netlabel (internet records label) releasing music album in MP3 format for free download.
