Meet The Artist - Diana Natalie Savori

Artist at Work

Hello Diana! Where are you from and where do you live?

Hi. I am from Indonesia and live in the Special Region of Jogjakarta.

How long have you been working as an artist?

I started back in 2016.

How do you describe your art and yourself as an artist?

I’m a self-taught artist. I like to experiment with different techniques and styles. I like a lot, but if I have to describe my art in a few words it would be impressionistic realism.

What are the main materials you use in your artworks?

I use various artist-grade watercolour materials, varying from Schminke to Sennelier. My preferred watercolour papers are Arches and Baohong.

What inspires you to paint?

I get most of my inspiration from daily life. It can be something very simple like light shining at just the right angle, or clouds reflecting on water. Most of my inspiration comes from nature and everyday life. Life itself is something beautiful, it’s all around is and I’m grateful for being able to capture it on paper.

Is there a favourite piece of work you’d like to tell us about?

I don’t really have a favourite piece of work. I’d like to invite you to check out my Instagram page though. Perhaps you have a favourite. I’d love to hear your opinions and thoughts.

You have recently designed the beautiful art for Carroll&Chan’s Moon Orchid range of candles and diffusers. Can you tell us about this flower and its significance in Indonesia?

Moon Orchid is indeed the flower of charm (Puspa Pesona. Puspa= flower, Pesona=charm). This title was given to the Moon Orchid back in 1993 by the government and translated into: a charm that represents the beauty of Indonesia. We like to show it off because it is really pretty and quite difficult to get it to bloom. Leaving it in the front garden especially when it is flowering is considered as an achievement of the owner.

Does Moon Orchid have any special meaning or memory for you?

Moon Orchid was my mother’s favourite flower. She’d hang them on a guava tree in front of our house where I always climbed and sat for hours. I had to be careful not to touch them on my way up or else I would get in trouble! So you can imagine how familiar this flower and especially its scent is for me. I practically grew up with it.

What are you working on now?

At the moment I’m painting for personal fulfillment.

Have you held any exhibitions of your work?

19 September 2019, SketsaForia Urban, in the National Gallery of Indonesia in Jakarta.
